Residents butcher whale washed ashore in Bayelsa (PHOTOS + VIDEO)

Residents of Okpoama in Brass Local Government Area of Bayelsa State have butchered a whale that was washed off the seashore.

CONVERSEER gathered that the incident happened on Wednesday morning when some of the residents woke up to see a whale, the largest animal in the world, struggling to get back to the sea after being washed off by sea waves.

Instead of helping the sea creature into the water, they rather turned it into meat.

A video obtained by CONVERSEER shows that the residents were using machetes, knives and other objects to cut the whale into buckets and containers and taking to their homes for food.

Bayelsa is an island state located in the South South geopolitical zone of Nigeria and one of the closest to the Atlantic Ocean.

This is not the first time such an incident has happened.

From time to time, sea creatures like whales, turtles, and even endangered sea animals are being washed off the shore.

Instead of saving them, the residents always turned them into meat.
