SAN DIEGO (AP) -- A dead humpback whale that kept floating up near Southern California beaches has finally been laid to rest.

The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/2ad5vH9 ) says the rotting carcass of a 45-foot-long female named Wally was cut up on an Encinitas beach on Monday and trucked to a San Diego landfill.

The body of the 15-year-old female was towed about a half-dozen times since it first washed ashore at Dockweiler State Beach in Los Angeles County on June 30.

Currents kept pushing it south. It was repeatedly towed out to sea after showing up off several Orange County beaches and finally came ashore over the weekend at Grandview Beach in Encinitas.
