Boom. Big badda boom. Trigger warning: Journo calls the whale a fish.

Trout River, Newfoundland – This tiny town of population 688 quite literally has a big whale of problem to deal with in the form of a blue whale that washed to shore a week ago. The whale measures 25 meters (81 feet) in length and will be quite the chore to clean up and dispose. In fact, the local government believes it is the job of the federal government to handle, but the feds have told the town it’s their problem. In response, they have stated that the community does not have the resources to handle such a large problem. That was certainly the case when the whale washed ashore and it is has become a worse problem since it became bloating with methane gas.
As of this time, the whale’s girth has more than doubled and there is a legitimate fear that it could explode.
