Death on the Beach, Update

ImageThis is the sad removal of the 60 year old Sperm Whale, he was 50 feet long and was a giant of the seas.

Pictures by Me

I found this wonderful example of giant marine life lying dead on our beach at the Kapiti Coast, New Zealand. I was walking the dogs, Cooper and Poppy early in the morning, when we saw this amazing animal half buried by the retreating tide. The dogs were really not interested, but I was, how could such a magnificent creature suddenly appear dead on the shoreline.

An expert from the Te Papa Museum from Wellington confirmed that is was an adult male Sperm Whale, but had no idea why or how the creature became washed up here.

I took some more pictures with my phone camera, and at the same time touched the sad remains, I knew I probably would never again in my lifetime get the chance to touch a marine leviathan. He was still warm, something I did not expect, so he surely had not been dead for long.

On further examination I found a puncture wound half way down his back, he had been murdered, probably harpooned.  What possesses a human being to kill such a magnificent creature. There are cultures in the World who desire to eat these wonderful creatures, Japan being the top of the list in this area. Surely the decent Governments of the World can do something to protect the giant marine life of the world, they were here long before us, and will still be here long after we are gone, they deserve some respect.

If you look closely you can see the deadly puncture wound,left,  and opposite the sadly closed eye. He beached himself and died in agony.

Shame on you, the whale hunters, killers of innocent victims.
