Who Will Dispose Of Decomposing Whale In Malibu?

Who Will Dispose Of Decomposing Whale In Malibu?

There is uncertainty maintained as to how, when and who should come forward to remove the 40,000-pound, 40-foot fin whale carcass, which is reported to be decomposing on Little Dume beach. If California Wildlife Center Executive Director Cindy Reyes is to be heard, towing the carcass would perhaps be the best option looking at the condition.

It is believed that the male fin whale was hit by a ship on Monday between Paradise Cove and Point Dume.

"There are big questions over who presides over the beach, where the whale carcass is located and what is the most appropriate way to remove the whale", said Olivia Damavandi, a spokesperson for the City of Malibu, who added that the city is apparently not the one who can decide on removing the carcass but some or the other move has to be taken.

The whale, which is reported to have decomposed considerable in the last four days, is likely to have become a huge challenge for the authorities concerned as its removal is going to be a huge task.

Though there were talks going on to get it done on Thursday, it could not be worked out somehow. However, there is uncertainty as to who among Los Angeles County Lifeguards or state officials will come forward to lead the task.
