Can't experts just go to this thing and investigate directly and do something like check for DNA matches? 

I see above there is clamoring for the Papameter to step in and tell certain people what they should think.

Papameter

7% Cryptid    93% Known Species 

DNA testing isn't even necessary, since it's a pretty complete skeleton looking at the bones alone would be enough to tell what whale species it is.

Perhaps but if it's a cryptid nobody has a frame of reference so they might call best fit on a known species,

Saying 100% is not logically sound based on how little we know. It's impossible to be a cryptid??

It was confirmed to be a minke whale, so it's definitely not an unknown species.

Pre-OP actually, the carcass was first seen last October in a less decomposed state. It had washed up then, been buried in sand, and then exposed again by a recent storm.
