A 40-foot sperm whale weighing 20 tons was found off the coast of Davao Oriental today according to Journalist SARX LANOS, who sends us daily dispatches.

Environment officials are looking for a place to bury the whale as well as for equipment to bring it there.

Dr. Lea Jiminez of the Davao Oriental State College of Science and Technology had this to say to Philippine Coast Guard officers who dragged the whale to shore:

“Glad you were able to recover and secure the whale, this is very important event as our waters of Davao Oriental can have the biggest sea mammal in the world, this is world record.”
