This is How Authorities Clean up Beached Whales and It’s Not Pretty

A beached whale is a headache for beachgoers, but what about the guy who has to clean it up?

In this video a beached whale is decaying on the sand and local authorities send in an earthmover to cut it up before it explodes.

Watching this video will give you a whole new appreciation for the work towns have to do when a beached whale washed up on their shores.

Warning: this video is not for those with weak stomachs.

This raw video of a beached whale was enlightening, perhaps too enlightening because it was a bit graphic. Did you see the whale’s blubber giggle when it was being cut in half.

It must have taken those men hours to clean up that beached whale. Luckily for them they got there before the whale’s deceasing body created too much gas build up and it exploded.

Whales get beached because they are either sick or do not have the energy to stay afloat. This causes them to be taken in by the current and they get washed up on the shore.
