Actually...... no. There was one time in one place that it was tried. My native state of Oregon. Basically back before land use laws were common, in the 1920s I think, Oregon wanted public beaches. So what they did was declare the Oregon coast a "highway" that way nobody could own it and it could stay public. This meant it also fell to the Oregon Highway Department to start managing a caring for the beach. Fast forward to the early 1970s an era when the beaches were still managed by the highway department and a whale beaches itself. The Highway engineers really really don't want to use the "chainsaw and dumpster" method that is both gross and takes a lot of time and come up with the idea of using high explosives to blast the body into "itty bitty pieces" that would theoretically be taken care of by seagulls and other scavengers.
That's right, humungous chunks of deadly whale blubber falling from the skies. Let's hope this video was supressed by SolForce security shortly before first contact with the Liir.
Yes, this really happened. Really.
