Beached Whale on White Rock Beach





A young humpback whale found entangled in fishing net has died after grounding itself on White Rock beach south of Vancouver.

Department of Fisheries and Oceans marine mammal co-ordinator Paul Cottrell said the severely emaciated young whale was first spotted as water receded from the sandy, tidal flats early Tuesday morning.

Cottrell said the eight- to 10-metre-long juvenile died just hours after beaching itself.

“It had been struggling for a long time and likely hadn’t been eating for a long time,” he said.

What would be the "proper" way of getting rid of a beached whale.

TNT must have sounded like a great idea back in the day :P

I'm guessing tow it back into the sea, let nature deal with it as if the whale died of natural causes

the fox radio station was trying to sell poor wally the whale. Not sure if they got a bidder or not. I drove by it this morning but there was a crowd blocking my view. I've never had whale meat but it must be edible. Give it to a homeless shelter and make whale stir fry or something. So much wasted meat. Poor wally. His parents must be worried sick.

End up floating back on shore.


They start decomposing and expanding, eventually they explode themselves or we cut a hole and let it evacuate the gases naturally.

A leisurely 5 minute drive from home down to the beach this morning. Beached whale takes priority over going to class



















A sad scene indeed.

fixed.

Some of us have a fascination for whales and other large animals, whether the animal is dead or alive.

eg.

Pretty sure that would violate international whaling treaties, but then again, they could take two measurements, call it research, then cut it up and sell it, circumventing the treaties Japanese style.

Poor guy, suffering for so long...
