They are planning on burying it tomorrow.

From the ABC facebook page, 12hrs ago.

"Shark bait. Surfers beware. This 9 metre humpback whale carcass washed ashore at Kilcunda on Sunday and Parks Victoria rangers are having trouble moving it from the water's edge. They'll return to the surf beach tomorrow to bury it at the base of the sand dunes. "


Thanks mate

Whales are protected, so that would be correct. A big NO NO, even though it is already dead etc.

Why not call the Japanese in to do research on it and then can remove it.

Free whale is better then hunting for it

I think the Japanese want a fresh one.

Why not tow it out to sea?

Keeps the sharks away from the beach.

I seem to recall reading a person was fined for removing teeth from a dead great white washed up on a beach somewhere...

People say that the shark (or whatever) died of natural causes, that's why protected means alive or dead..

Parks Victoria are dealing with a 15-tonne humpback whale carcass that recently washed up on a beach near Wonthaggi in Victoria.

Ranger Gerrard Delaney of Parks Victoria told ABC Radio Melbourne's Red Symons, the whale has been popular among curious passersby.

"We just need to make it clear that it is protected, dead or alive, whales are protected," he said.

"There is a 300-metre exclusion zone around the whale. They can have disease and pathogens that can transfer to humans."

Mr Delaney indicated Parks Victoria were having a difficult time burying the whale carcass and that the beach was currently closed partly due to the threat of sharks.
