(NECN) - Another massive whale's body has, once again, washed up on the Massachusetts shore.

The dead whale was found in Rockport over the weekend.

Experts at the New England Aquarium believe it is the same whale that was spotted earlier in Boston Harbor the previous weekend, before it apparently floated back out to sea.

The town of Rockport is working the with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on a plan to dispose of the whale, which could cost tens of thousands of dollars.

The photo of the whale spotting was shared by Good Morning Gloucester.com.
