USCG Shoots Up Dead Whale

A United States Coast Guard crew based on the Big Island of Hawaii attempted to sink a bloated whale carcass found floating outside Hilo Harbor by firing more than 30 rounds into it from an M-16 rifle. It didn’t work. The lieutenant in charge explained that this method “does not appear to have worked very well right now, but in time it may.” I think we all know a another way to deal with that carcass! Unfortunately, using explosives may have left the half-dozen tiger sharks, each measuring 12 to 17 feet long, as unnecessary collateral.
