Argh can't see the video, doesn't load it. Is it on youtube at all or is there a pic? If someone could post it please, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Yeah I like the way UM does that, always does it with youtube links. Very handy.

Definitively think it's a Killer whale or False killer whale.

From the article:


However,the clip was sent to marine mammal expert Anton van Helden and he reckons the creature could be a killer whale.
“The video pans over the flipper and it is a flat paddle shape which is diagnostic of the killer whale,” he said.
“It is very typical for whales of different shapes and sizes to wash up on beaches around New Zealand.”

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Yep!

A better thread title: 'Mystery marine creature is killer whale'

Edit: Typo.

When I saw it, I felt it was just some decomposed animal, but not sure what kind. Things have a habit of looking odd when decomposing.

Yeah it would be kind of weird if things didn't decompose. The world would just be covered in dead things getting eaten by living things which look exactly the same.

At least the meat would stay fresh.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.
