Have You Seen the Disturbing Whale-Dumpster Video?

A 16-foot-long dead whale washed up on a beach in New Hampshire on Monday.  And a video of someone using a fork-lift to try and fit it in a DUMPSTER has been making the rounds online.  It didn't even come close to fitting.

They weren't just tossing it in the trash.  They wanted to transport it so researchers could do an autopsy and figure out why it died.  But the video is kind of disturbing, especially if you like whales.  And animal-rights people aren't happy about it.

Yikes. The dead minke whale found on Jenness Beach didn't fit in the dumpster. @UnionLeader https://t.co/hXuukJyeMA


The town's police chief took responsibility, saying there was a miscommunication, and they meant to request a bigger container.
