Witness a SNAFU of epic proportions. 1/2 ton of dynamite used to blow up a decaying whale on an Oregon beach. [url]http://www.perp.com/whale/video.html[/url]

"I was there that day, on the dunes, over looking the beach. We were between the whale and parking lot. Parts flew everywhere, with some flying over our heads and as was said, one landed on a car. The owner said "Oh my God, what am I going to tell my insurance man?" He sure had a sick look on his face. It took days to get the smell out of our hair and clothes. Everything was very oily. Days before, someone had taken a chain saw and removed the lower jaw of the whale. The day they blew the whale is one day I'll always remember. I'll not do that again."
