Whale Problems

New, 11 comments

Four days ago, a 40-foot-long fin whale washed ashore between Point Dume and Paradise Cove on Little Dume beach, just below Barbra Streisand and Bob Dylan's houses, and now no one's quite sure how to get rid of it: "The lifeguards said they were game, but weren't sure what to do. The city of Malibu said the county would probably take care of it, but the county insisted Little Dume is a private beach, which it is not. Then local officials said the state might take care of it, but the nearest state property appeared to be nearly a mile to the southwest." And now the whale is really starting to stink.
