Social media users responded to their horror at the tragic death of the beautiful whale.

& # 39; A reminder that the ocean can be a sad, tragic and beautiful place at the same time & # 39 ;, someone wrote.

& # 39; Sad as it is, it's just nature that does a life cycle! & # 39; another responded.

Humpback whales are found in the waters off the coast of Australia.

The large mammal spends the summer in Antarctica, where it feeds on krill and then travels north in the winter to breed.
