Wow and I thought nothing interesting happend in here.


(04/04/05) SOUTHAMPTON - Residents on the East End got a real life lesson in marine sciences Sunday when a whale washed ashore on a Southampton beach.

Experts from the Riverhead Foundation say the adult female was dead before she washed up on shore east of the Shinnecock Inlet. Marine biologists say the 60-foot, 60-ton finback whale is in good shape so they will have to do an autopsy, called a necropsy, to figure out what killed it.

Marine biologists will have to perform the necropsy on the beach because the whale is too heavy too move. Before the whale’s body parts are buried on the beach, the Shinnecock Nation wants part of the whale for its cultural center. However, since federal law protects the whale, the Shinnecock Nation needs permission to keep part of it from state and federal wildlife agencies.


Whale vidio
Seems kind of dumb that the Shinnecocks cant keep a peace of the whale if they really want to. Stupid federal laws. They say they are going to bury it. Hehe I like what these people did betterWhale blow up. Warning kinda graphic

let them have the whole thing if they want it. provided that they deal with what they don't want. why not a least get some use out of it? it certainly would be better than blowing it up

Just make sure they don't try and blow it up. That didn't go well for another city as they ended up spreading blubber all over town.

I don't think they are going to want any pieces of it after they do the necropsy tomorrow. They are thinking it has been floating around dead for 2 weeks -- I wouldn't be surprised if it blew up when they cut into it -- UGH But it didn't smell bad yesterday-- with a really good breeze.

But I would think that the Shinnecocks could get the approval for a piece of it if they want-- They are pretty high profile right now with trying to open a casino on some land so I'm sure some of the lawyers etc could handle it for them.

btw -- Southampton is one word --

Checked out the video -- I actually know everyone they interviewed --

I think the tribe should be given the whale -- they can probably use the skeleton as the prop in their projected casino.

By the way, greetings to my fellow Lond Islanders on this board!

This must be a sign of the End of the Times and the coming of the Beast. It might be a 60-yr.-old specimen, and that would make it a 60-60-60 individual, which clearly suggests the number of the Beast. Moreover, the thing is in itself a Big Beast, which is an additional point of corroboration. Then there's the tale of Noah and the whale, etc. etc. etc.

I was surprised it was news 12 heh because i watch news 12 westchester so i was kind of shocked that something like this would happen so close because nothing really exciting happens around here. Great find Croat.

The video from News 12 was super. Also I was thinking about what the Shinnecock Nation could put in the museum -- and I came up with the baleen maybe -- that would be a cool addition to the museum.

The museum is still new but it is a really great building -- a log cabin with a fully carved door. I think the addition of the baleen would be great in there.

Where is their museum exactly? Im kinda getting interested

It's on Montauk Highway - just east of Southampton College -- and a little before the Shinnecock Smoke Shop. I haven't been in the museum yet -- it just partially opened last fall I believe - but they have been building it for a few years. Have you been to the Pow Wow at all -- if so it is on one of the entrance roads to where the Pow Wow takes place. I would call if you were coming out -- to be sure it is open on the day you are coming.

I'm asking because of a possible magnetic pole shift that is due to happen in near future. However, I guess it won't happen overnight. There might be a connection (or not
).
