Animal washed up on Molokai shore actually pseudo orca

MOLOKAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - An update on the whale-like animal that washed up on the southeast coast of Molokai Saturday.

NOAA experts say it is actually a false killer whale, or "pseudo orca."

They say the 14-foot female had signs of an infection in the eye, head and lung area.

It could be a few weeks before results from the necropsy come back.
