Dead Whale Found With Metal Chunk in Intestines Deserves Justice

Target: Director Michael Berkow, Coast Guard Investigative Service
Goal: Devote more resources to finding fishermen responsible for dead whale.

A humpback whale was discovered floating belly up in a shallow lagoon. Upon examination, it appeared that the whale had injuries around its head and mouth likely caused by fishing equipment. Additionally, a large chunk of metal was found in the whale’s intestines, which had damaged the creature’s digestive tract.

The deceased whale was a magnificent animal. It measured 38 feet in length and weighed 30 tons. Volunteers provided the whale a burial on the beach by using an excavator to dig a deep hole in the sand.

Scientists who studied the whale learned that the animal was otherwise a healthy creature that likely would have lived a long life. It had thick blubber and a belly full of food, suggesting that illness or disease did not play a role in the animal’s demise.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Director Michael Berkow,

A beached humpback whale was recently discovered on a New York shoreline. The animal was found floating upside down in a shallow lagoon. Upon investigation, the whale appeared to have injuries to its mouth and head that are consistent with damage from fishing equipment. Additionally, the whale had a large chunk of metal in its intestines. This may have caused sufficient damage to the animal’s digestive tract to lead to its death.

The whale was determined to be otherwise in good physical condition. It had a thick layer of blubber and it’s belly was full of food. This suggests that disease or illness was not the cause of death.

It is not unusual for fishing boats to be the unintentional (or intentional) cause of injury and death to whales. This unfortunate fact can be combated if we devote the time and resources necessary to find and prosecute those responsible for the death of this magnificent creature. Please do everything in your power to bring justice to this deceased whale.

Sincerely,
[Your Name Here]

    ENOUGH is ENOUGH from the IRRESPONSIBLE DESTRUCTIVE acts by SELFISH, HUMANS whose DISDAIN for other SENTIENT BEINGS is GROWING on an unbelievable scale. As the human race becomes more and more SELF PRESERVING, they forget or are too IGNORANT TO REALISE that the HUMAN RACE is the LEAST NECESSARY to the SURVIVAL OF NATURE and THIS PLANET.NATURE’S OTHER SENTIENT BEINGS UNDERSTAND THEIR ROLE IN THE ECOLOGICAL BALANCE OF LIFE and how to live, UNSELFISHLY, thus SUSTAINABLY! It is ONLY the GREED DRIVEN, IGNORANT HUMAN who thinks that this planet was created for humans to do as they please with! WITHOUT humans All other species could RECOVER from THE DAMAGE already caused to the environment and LIVE and THRIVE IN HARMONY as NATURE INTENDED. THE OCEANS ARE DYING, BECAUSE OF SELFISH ACTS SUCH AS THE CRUEL DEATH of this INNOCENT, GENTLE CREATURE, CAUSED BY LAZY, CALLOUS FISHING METHODS. Isn’t it enough that the industrial SLAUGHTER of SENTIENT SEA LIFE IS SO UNSUSTAINABLE, without adding INSULT to INJURY by DUMPING their killing equipment in the home of their VICTIMS CREATING FURTHER DESTRUCTION!!! May this and other poor victims, REST IN PEACE and may those responsible be prosecuted for crimes AGAINST NATURE.

  12. This magnificent creature suffered and died horribly. This has to stop.

  13. This poor baby probably suffered in silence for months or years. It’s an outrageous sin how we are trashing the planet. Rest in peace sweet baby.

    Wow ….these fishermen have no regard at all for marine life. Imagine what this whale went through. Marine life and animals can’t run to the doctor for help. What greedy heartless assholes fishermen are!…

    THE LAW MUST IMPLEMENT MORE STRINGENT LAWS TO PROSECUTE PEOPLE WHO HARM MARINE LIFE IN ANY WAY.

    DON’T EAT FISH OF ANY KIND!!!!
