A rotting dead whale carcass that washed up on a private beach in Malibu near the homes of celebrities is puzzling authorities who have no idea how to remove the 40,000-pound beast.
Los Angeles County lifeguards panned to pull the 40,000-pound dead whale out to sea at high tide on Tuesday, but the job proved to be too much.
However, that may be too much of a job, county fire Inspector Brian Riley said.
“Our lifeguards think this probably exceeds our capabilities,” said county fire Inspector Brian Riley to City News Service. “You would need a tug boat to drag it out to sea.”
Even that may not be enough to pull the dead whale out to sea.
According to local rescue boat Captiain Kevin Marble, the dead whale is partially buried under the sand, and is so decomposed that trying to pull it out to sea would just tear the carcass in half.
They should just blow the sumbitch up like they did in the Reno 911 movie.
