The Town of Cape St. George is turning to eBay in an attempt to get rid of a dead beached whale.

The decomposing sperm whale currently has no bids.

The town is asking for bids on the dead 40-foot sperm whale that landed on the beach at Marche's Point last week. The listing on eBay is for seven days and the successful bidder will have to remove the whale within 30 days.

 "The 40 foot sperm whale will make a spectacular exhibit once the fat and muscle sis removed, and the town is asking museums and other organizations that could use a whale skeleton to contact the town for further details," Mayor Peter Fenwick said in a news release.

"As a town we would dearly love to keep the whale and put it on exhibit in the town but the cost of such a venture would be hard to justify,” Fenwick added.

Anyone interested in purchasing the whale carcass can contact the town at 709-644-2290 or Mr. Fenwick at 709-649-7070.
