A porpoise has been washed up dead on Hele beach in Ilfracombe.
The harbour porpoise was photographed by Jane Monger on Sunday evening.
She said it appeared to have part of its throat missing, as if it had been attacked by something.
Jane said they reported the sighting to the Government website, as people are asked to do.
