Gray whale hauled up Santa Cruz cliff, off to the dump

Full story: Santa Cruz Sentinel

It was as if the wharf workers and tow truck drivers were experienced at hoisting decaying whales from rocky coves up steep cliffs and onto flat bed trucks.

Too bad we can't find out the cause of death- if its pollution, sonar, "natural causes", etc. Amazing creatures.

Dear Sentinel:
Please remove this photo. It is sad. It is grotesque. It is morbid. It is old news.
Thank you.

What a shame. the carcas should have been left on the beach to rot. How dare the behinds that be remove the whale from the ecosystem that it came from to dispose of it in a way nature never intended. It would have been very interesting to place a 24-7 camara on the decomposing carcas to document how nature takes care of it's own.
I compare this "crime" to that of the
George Bush's relative retaining the skull of a famous indian from which to drink beer for initiation in a fraternity.
It is a crime to disturb the body of such a great beast. It should have been allowed to go back to nature as god intended.
happy new year.

Animals are gifts in the form of companionship, labor, food, etc. depending on the type. As gifts they should be utilized for their intended purpose while being respected.
