Couple discover backyard sinkhole in Schuyler Falls, New York

A sinkhole opened up in the backyard of a Schuyler Falls property. Highway departments from Plattsburgh and Schuyler Falls teamed up to bring the resident enough sand to fill the sinkhole
Dennis Trost and his wife discovered a sinkhole last week in the backyard of their Schuyler Falls home.

"Well, it's scary when you hear all the stories. Then it happens to you and you don't know what the heck's going to happen," said Trost.

Since finding the sinkhole, Trost said the gaping hole has only grown. When the Highway Department officials arrived the hole was about 5 feet deep.

"We came running out and there was no dirt around but this big hole was here, so we kind of backed off and looked inside it because it was undermine quite a bit," said Trost.

Schuyler Falls Highway Department Superintendent John Rock said sinkholes are rare for the North Country, and it's often difficult to determine the cause.

"[Trost] said he's been here 20-something years and it wasn't filled in, so it must be an underground spring or something," said Rock.

Rock said another possibility is that there used to be a rotting tree in the spot which created an underground hole.

Dead juvenile pilot whale found on Searsport beach, Maine

Volunteer firefighters worked to move a dead juvenile pilot whale Friday morning. The whale, which weighed about 500 pounds and did not show signs of propeller damage, will be studied by researchers at Allied Whale in Bar Harbor.
Several Searsport volunteer firefighters responded to a plea Friday morning for a lift assist down at the town dock.

What they didn't know was that they'd be lifting a whale - a 500-pound dead pilot whale, to be precise.

"[They had] not a clue," Officer Mike Larrivee of the Searsport Police Department said. "They all showed up and said 'oh boy, what are we doing here?'"

The dead whale, believed to be a female, had been found Thursday at the beach at the end of Lobster Lane, just east of Moose Point State Park. A man walking his dogs found the animal and called to report it. Larrivee then got in touch with Allied Whale, the marine mammal research arm of the College of the Atlantic, which helps Searsport with seals or other marine mammals. But this was something different, he said.

Albany beachgoers warned after Humpback whale carcass attracts sharks, Australia

The carcass of a one-year-old humpback whale is removed from Middleton Beach.
Authorities have warned beachgoers in Albany, on Western Australia's south coast, to exercise caution after sharks were attracted to the area by a whale carcass.

Middleton Beach was closed after the five-metre carcass, suspected to be a one-year-old humpback whale, was discovered this morning.

Heavy machinery was brought in to remove the dead whale from the popular swimming area.

Authorities believe it came ashore overnight whilst still alive, but died a few hours later.

Deon Utber from the Department of Parks and Wildlife said tissue samples from the whale would be taken for analysis.

"It was probably a calf returning from last season, it was obviously very malnourished," he said.

"A pod of humpback whales was seen out here this morning so this whale was probably from that pod.

"When this species becomes sick, they do come into the shore to die.

"The animal is taken off the beach, we take some samples and some measurements and it's then disposed of."
