Mar 14, 2007 11:32 pm US/Eastern

(WBZ) PROVINCETOWN An endangered North Atlantic right whale suffered deep cuts after it was struck by the propellor of a ship in the Atlantic Ocean.

Experts with the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies say the wound on the whale's right flank appears to be 12 feet long and 2-to-3 feet wide.

The whale was last spotted west of the Wood End Lighthouse off Provincetown.

The PCCS says shipstrikes are a leading cause of right whale deaths.
