A Dead Whale on Your Property? That's Your Problem
Compared to a homeowner near Point Judith, Rhode Island, we were lucky. The other day a dead whale washed up onto his beach. The Providence Journal summed up the situation succinctly:
The whale was wrapped with some kind of line, perhaps fishing line, and that was cut off and sent for examination to the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies.
Removal of the whale is the responsibility of the property owner...
Bummer, for the whale and for the property.
