Newfoundlanders have a whale of a problem on their hands, as fears arise that a dead sea mammal could soon explode on its shore.
The town of Trout River is trying to dispose of a blue whale that washed up on a beach after nine of the endangered animals were found dead in the ice off the province's west coast several weeks ago, CBC News reported.
Town clerk Emily Butler says she's been told that the municipality is responsible for the whale, but she's trying to contact a government agency for help because it can't deal with the 25-metre carcass alone.
"We really don't have any resources and we really don't have the expertise," she told the network.
Butler is worried that the carcass could blow up as it has slowly grown bigger. In the meantime, it is emitting a nasty odour and has become an attraction for onlookers who want to witness the rare sight for themselves
Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.
