The whale was discovered on Capricorn Beach, in the capital city of Cape Town, this Sunday. Its carcass reportedly measured 30 meters, or 98 feet.
Movers required an industrial digger to remove the remains of the gigantic animal to a nearby landfill. The only question left lingering in everyone's minds is how a 30m whale gets to suffer mutilation and dismembering.

"The animal had several bits of flesh taken out of it, and it appears it had been bitten by sharks," City emergency services spokesman Wilfred Solomons-Johannes confirmed.
Sharks roam the coast of South Africa, and are responsible of several deaths each year. Capricorn beach has been closed until further notice, with authorities notifying the public that getting in the water could cost them their lives.
“The city is appealing to all water users to be vigilant at this time, obey the shark siren, and to take note of the Shark Spotters' flags and signage for regular updates on shark sightings,” Mr Solomons-Johannes added.
