  • VIDEO Beached Whale Removed from Outer Cove

    Efforts  to remove a whale carcass from the beach in Outer Cove were successful.

    Equipment moved to the site yesterday morning to lift the rotting remains from the water and into a waiting dump truck that took it to the landfill in Sunnyside for safe disposal.

    Logy Bay-Middle Cove-Outer Cove Mayor John Kennedy says the process to get the whale removed was frustrating.

    In the meantime, Kennedy says concerns for public safety should dissipate once the whale is gone.

    He said once the carcass is removed, wave action should clean away whatever harmful material might be in the area.

    In the meantime, a local lab conducted recent testing on the beach in the area, and found no traces of harmful pathogens outside the norm.
