Dead whale on Ballito Beach
UPDATE: To see what happened to the Whale and how they got rid of it, check out this post
Yesterday morning, I saw a tweet from Justin saying there was a dead whale on the beach in Ballito. Because I was still in Jozi, my wife went down to have a look and took a couple of pics. I went down earlier today, and I am amazed by the size of the thing !! It is massive.and hectically stinky !!
According to the Timeslive & IOL websites the whale is still a baby and apparently has been dead for about 4 days. By the sounds of things, it will only be moved tomorrow, where they will attempt to move it back into the sea and let nature takes it’s course.
The white marks you see on the top of the whale are bite marks from Sharks. Gonna be very interesting to see how they get it back out to sea, it didn’t look it would budge pretty easily.
Here are a couple of photos taken by my wife yesterday morning.
