Authorities to remove whale
The City of Cape Town is ready to remove and dispose of a whale that washed up at Capricorn Beach.
CAPE TOWN - The city's cleansing department is on Monday preparing to remove the carcass of a Southern Right Whale from the False Bay Coast.
The 30 metre whale was bitten by great white sharks at the weekend and spilt litres of blood and blubber into the ocean.
It has since washed up near Capricorn Beach.
The City of Cape Town's Clare McKinnon said, “It’s quite a common occurrence though. We do get whales regularly washing out especially at this time of year. Our job is to remove them and dispose of them correctly.”
