Federal officials say a necropsy conducted on the latest grey whale found dead off the B-C coast found no obvious cause of death.

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans says the whale appeared to be quite healthy, and a stomach full of invertebrates showed it had been eating.

It says an analysis of the tissue and blood samples can take six to eight weeks.

The mature female whale was found floating in Boundary Bay near the U-S border on Tuesday -- the sixth found off the B-C coast so far this year in what has been an unusually deadly year for the animals. (CTV Vancouver)

Events tomorrow include a youth leadership panel, an update from the Green Party caucus in the legislature and a keynote address by Weaver tomorrow night. (The Canadian Press)
