A pregnant blue whale washed ashore on Bean Hollow Beach in California. The 80' carcass is being examined by biologists but it is suspected the animal was killed by a ship strike. Sad. Is it any wonder why so many species become extinct? The other day a friend sent me an email with pictures of a sea turtle egg harvest in Central America. People, if you insist on harvesting the spawn of animals, there won't be any animals left to spawn.
