Cutting up a whale

The Copenhagen Zoological Museum cut up a whale today. Yep, a small whale (meaning 5 meters long and weighing 3 tons) was found dead in a fishing net, and though whales are normally cut up at the place where they’re found, this one was small enough to load on a truck, drive to the Zoological Museum and dismember in front of an excited crowd. The skeleton will end up in the museum.

This I had to see. I mean, don’t we all secretly wish to see large oceanic mammals be cut up? I certainly do. It was kinda fund to see the inside of a whale, but I’m disappointed that nobody brought rice – it would have made sushi for hundreds of people. I even have pictures.
