Whale workers unfazed by overpowering stench

  • Nit Lemley, a volunteer from Mendocino, pulls a large section of blubber from the carcass of a 70 ft. blue whale killed in an open ocean collision with a research ship last week. The whale washed up just south of Ft. Bragg researchers from Humboldt State will haul away the pieces and bury the skeleton for a time before digging it back up and reassembling the bones.
