Another whale washed up in cornwall

yesterday a large whale was washed up on Tregantle beach just west of plymouth .

Seems it was already dead and pretty smelly . Not seen it reported in the news yet .

I wonder what they will do with it ?

We passed by the smelly floating island around 11.30 on Friday en route to Fowey, 2 miles south of Yeoman Point in Whitsand Bay. Young male Humpback?

I could Just imagine running into it in the big rollers out there today . talk about stuffed ??

Blow it up thats priceless only in america eh .
having said that the fiasco between caradon council and the whitsand bay chalet owners assc and the RNLI has seen the surf life saving club virtually fold and half the beach with no lifeguard cover so it wouldn't surprise me .

I think its down to the military on that end ofthe beach ?
