Dead whale washes up on Revere Beach

State Police report on the 25-foot-long carcass. The New England Aquarium reports the carcass is that of a whale that had earlier washed up on a beach in Cohasset. This sort of wandering-whale-carcass thing has happened before.

Obligatory Oregon exploding-whale video.

Didn't ton's of dead clams just wash up on Revere Beach last week? They were buried on the beach to reduce the odor that was getting unbearable. I hope they won't be trying the same solution for the whale!

This whale was already towed off of a rich community's beaches, only to end up in Revere.

A clear act of decomposing cetacean injustice!

Legalize the sale of whale oil from beached carcasses (have the state auction the rights at each discovery) and the market will take care of the rest.

we'll have two guys from Malden saying "No, we didn't drag that whale from the ocean. It just washed up in our driveway."

It washed up on Little Brewster Island this morning, right in front of the lighthouse.

Somebody was worried about the whale recently seen breaching in the harbor due to it being such a busy port. Maybe their fears were well founded.

The first time we shared 420 in Newport.. "Whales can't walk, they don't have feet!"
