Dead fin whale giving off stink in Nova Scotia community hauled away

PORT HASTINGS, N.S. - A rotting whale that was giving off a foul odour in a Cape Breton community has been towed away from the Strait of Canso.

Officials with Nova Scotia's Natural Resources Department say the 15-metre fin whale was hauled away from Port Hastings on Thursday.

The whale was first seen last Thursday, setting off a discussion between Ottawa, the province and the municipal government over who was responsible for removing it.

Tourism Minister Michel Samson, the member for Cape Breton-Richmond, said Wednesday the Natural Resources Department would take care of the removal.

Locals said the whale was emitting a stink in the area and needed to go.
