Sperm Whale explodes in city street! I missed this story when it came out, and have just seen the pictures! Thar she blows! By Metro 29 January 2004 A dead sperm whale exploded on a city street showering shops and cars with blood and entrails. The 50-ton, 55ft long carcass was heading for a research centre on the back of a lorry when gases built up in its gut. Workers spent hours clearing up the mess. 'The smell was awful,' said one witness in Tainan City, Taiwan.
