The whale was first sighted after an unfortunate encounter with a containership in Newark Bay on Monday, as reported by NBC New York.

The 30-foot whale was first spotted under the bow of a cargo ship in Newark Bay by a pilot boat driver a couple of days ago, according to Bob Schoelkopf of Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigatine. The ship appeared to have struck the whale, the pilot boat driver confirmed.
