Agree with Jim,but then again when DOC is involved its anyone's guess as to what could happen,perhaps if they had been notified when the whale first washed up they could have wasted a 100,000 bucks trying to resuscitate it !!!,hey don't laugh,how much did that bloody penquin cost the country when it lost its way ?,bet a fat leopard seal is laughing now.

How on earth do you think they'd tow a 57 TONNE mammal over to the island? lol.

The local iwi are taking the jawbone, and i imagine it will be buried deep near the dunes. i guess they wont take it out to sea for fear of parts of it being washed up again. i would have thought it would have been better to tow it to kapiti island or somewhere so it wont matter if it smells

Are there no resources we can use from this animal? Why just bury it?

Why burry it? Why not cut it and throw it back to the sea for other creatures to eat?
