dead whale

Poor sperm whale washed up - always saddens me to see something like this.

Loved this comment

"Council officials have ruled out using explosives to destroy the body.
They said this would be too dangerous because the beach is popular with walkers and the scene is close to a picnic area."

Wonder if they have seen the famous Yank video???

Have you ever smelled a dead whale? Think of the worst smell you have ever come across, multiply it by ten, drop it in a sewage farm and then add an alligator farm on a hot day. We had about 90 pilot whales wash up on the beach in front of our farm when I was about 15 and I spent days towing them away (a long way downwind!) with a tractor. Took about 5 years for them to decompose and took 2 weeks before the smell went from my hands

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...

Hi Codders

Smell of Whale Phew.

A few years ago I pondered as to how the local council was oing to get rid of said whale on beach. It was a Blue Whale El Morto for some few weeks and decomposing.

Firstly it will not do much good with explosive unslss you have a serious amount of Gulls topick up the pieces.

The local Brain chain thought of burning it with rubber tyres.

Ok so you asked whats worse than the smell of rotting fish blubber,? ans is rotting fish blubber smouldering with burning tyres. Outside the fact that the local council is not allowed:
Burning of fires in Public Place.
The use of Tyres or other Hydrocarbon accellerant etc or whetever.
Bonfires on beach.
and so forth... They geezers broke all their own rules in their book, it was burningfor weeks, still didnt work and they still have no answer for Whales that do not know there arse from their elbow nor left from right....

I reckon, they should have used chains saws and ferrid teh remains to an old whaler off shore for boiling, then give the lot back to Davy JonesLocker.
