This image of a dead whale, soaked in oil and appearing to be burned as well, is all over the Internet. The odd thing to me is that people are actually disputing that it was killed by the BP oil spill.
Scientists found this sperm whale 77 miles south of the BP spill site off the Gulf Coast. (This is the most common description found with this photo. It clearly shows a sperm whale, soaked in oil.)
So, what do you think? Is there any doubt that this whale is dead because of the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico? I really don’t see that there is any controversy here.
