It's all Mufi's fault, whenever he takes a dump, because of all the Shibai in his system, the sewage treatment plant cannot process his "residue". Therefore it gets pumped into the outfall pipes in the ocean and sicken all marine animals....including this pygmy whale....

Better not pick opihi too!

Only the incense-burning, crystal worshipping, flute blowing, pot smoking, tree hugging, whale harassing, new-age, left over, 60's hippies, would go against this whale and his pod's action, when the whale wanted to pass on, on top da beach.

And den get Charlie Maxwell making up his own voodoo stuff at da beach where the whale when land. All you hippies---no go encourage Maxwell. No listen to him and, no matter what, no go let him tell you what to do. The guy is clueless.

Da Hawaiians---you know the real kine---used to use the whale teeth of beached whales.

Notice that the whales send all of their sick, dying & dead towards shore. What's up with that? Do they think that the sick dead & dying do better upland? Do they have memory of a whale who was rehabilitated & returned?

Eh, if the whale like make (die) on top the beach, not going be the first time, as they have been doing this since way, way back, long before the days of rock and roll.

Maybe they remember, in their primordial memory, that they once walked the land.

They are, of course, after all, mammals. As right: they related to us.

Or maybe they like the hippies smoking weed by the beach for take one big wiff of their decaying carcass next time they "inhale?"

the whales are probably thinking the same thing when we 'bury' our dead at sea...
