Just Another Reason to Move to New Zealand
OK. Nothing like this ever happens in Pennsylvania. Officials in New Zealand are telling people (New Zealanders presumably) to stay off the beach because...exploding whales.
The devastating mass stranding event that saw more than 650 pilot whales beach themselves in New Zealand over the weekend is finally over, with 17 survivors making it back to a large pod of more than 200 individuals seen 6 km (3.7 miles) offshore.Who needs Sharknado V when stuff like this is actually happening.
But things are just getting started for the clean-up crew, because hundreds of carcasses are now strewn across Farewell Spit beach, and the public has been banned due to fears of spontaneous whale explosions caused by gas build-up.
