A decapitated whale calf that also missed its tail has been removed from Bondi Beach in Sydney, which remains closed due to the risk of increased shark activity.
The juvenile humpback carcass was seen Tuesday morning at the north end of the beach, with the National Parks and Wildlife Service and the whale welfare group ORRCA called to remove it.
The mammal, which missed its head and tail, was taken away at midday and taken to a waste transport station in Banksmeadow for disposal, told a spokeswoman of NPWS to AAP.
It is unclear how the whale died.
The beach will remain closed for the rest of Tuesday due to the risk of increased shark activity, Waverley Council said in a statement.
