A 10-metre (33-foot) whale died on Sunday after becoming tangled in a Tunisian fisherman's nets off the coast of Sidi Bou Said town north of the capital Tunis.
"At first, I thought it was a car bumper. Then I saw the whale's tail," the 24-year-old Bilel Jerbi told AFP.
He said the whale, whose species has yet to be identified, was already dying when he found it in his nets, although it was unclear what had killed it.
Jerbi then towed the carcass to port in Sidi Bou Said.
