A 42 foot whale

42footwhale.jpgA 42-foot whale died after it beached at Barangay Tagdon, Barcelona, Sorsogon. Known as Bryde’s whale, it is not an endangered species and is usually sighted off the coasts of Siquijor, Bohol, Camiguin and Palawan. Though residents in the area wanted a piece of the meat, local officials buried the enormous mammal according to the provisions of an administrative order of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources.
