Two days ago a 25 foot dead whale washed up on Jones Beach. I had read in the newspaper that they would normally bury it in the dunes but that area is a protected nesting ground for the Piping Plovers so they couldn't bury it there.
Last night at volleyball, a few of us were discussing just that... what to do with a 25 foot whale? One of the guys mentioned a Youtube video about a beach in Florence, OR that had that problem and how they solved it. It was from way back in the '70's. I have to say... it was pretty funny.
