Dispute over whale skeleton display in Canada

Display of skeletons from dead whales that washed up in Newfoundland subject of dispute between village and museum.

    Canadian researchers are set to begin removing the bodies of two blue whales that washed ashore in fishing villages in the eastern province of Newfoundland. 

    There had been fears that the rotting carcasses, weighing 60 tonnes, could explode due to the buildup of gas inside the decomposing whales. But now there's a dispute over where the whale's skeletons might be put on display.
