A juvenile whale was found dead on New Hampshire beach. The news is making the rounds because local officials first tried to transport the whale in a dumpster, which was too small. Scientists plan to do a autopsy. To determine the cause of death and whether or not to determine it’s the sign of a trend.
Some people thought they were disposing of the whale in a dumpster. But they were actually attempting to load the minke into a dumpster to transport to a facility. So that one could perform an autopsy.
The dead minke that didn’t fit in the dumpster spent the whole night in the parking lot of Jenness Beach in Rye #NH. The government finally delivered a bigger dumpster in the morning. To haul the giant to a composting site for an autopsy.
