This is the one from yesterday - they washed up about 2 miles apart from another. Both had those reddish/pink coloring on the underside (see my earlier image above) - maybe they were caught up in a fishing net or something

Yes, but extremely rare,

Most likely caught in gillnets, or sportfishing release mortality.
