The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is investigating why a pilot whale was found dead near Hanalei on Kauai's north shore.

NOAA Fisheries Service spokeswoman Wende Goo said a team of veterinarians and support staff would arrive on Kauai to perform a necropsy on Friday.

Goo says it will take time to send specimens to a mainland laboratory for analysis. The agency doesn't expect to have more information on the whale for at least several days.
