50th Anniversary Whale Carcass Was Blown Up In Oregon

(Portland, OR)  --  Yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of an exploding whale in Oregon.  On November 12th, 1970, officials used boxes of powerful explosives to get rid of a whale carcass that had washed up on shore near Florence, about three hours south of Portland.  The explosion sent bits of blubber into the air and scattered the whale across several miles.  Video of the news coverage has been seen over 350-million times in recent years.
