Tech & Science Whales Animals Carcasses Seeing a dead whale on the beach is upsetting to some and interesting to others, but the smell can be overpoweringly awful. You really have to get rid of those things if you want to use the beach anytime soon.

When lifeguards saw a 36-foot-long gray whale floating off the coast of San Diego last week, they started an all-too-familiar process of removal. Figuring the carcass would ultimately wash up on the beach, as they often do, they towed the dead whale to Fiesta Island, their designated whale-removal spot. The average person isn’t trained to handle removing a raccoon carcass from their yard, let alone a multi-ton sea creature. What are your options for removal, anyway?
