Matter of honour

Woman buries whale.

Sharon Cooper, a member of the nearby Beecher Bay First Nation, went to see the 10-metre whale on Tuesday, a few days after it washed ashore.

She was disturbed by the scores of people who were standing on the whale, poking at it and even taking parts home with them.

“It made me sick,” she said. “Obviously it’s [already] dead, but it was being dishonoured.”

Cooper knew something had to be done quickly before the whale became too decomposed to be transported.
