Abstract

Lou Miller works for L. P. Murray, which deals with sewage, digs holes for cemeteries, and also digs holes for large, dead animals such as horses and whales. When a minke whale washed up in Cape Elizabeth in 2001, Miller loaded it into a public works dump truck, took it to the town dump, and buried it in a hole that had been specifically dug for it. Scientists examine dead whales to determine the cause of death, including effects from the Navy's controversial Low Frequency Active Sonar (LFAS) system, which generates loud underwater sounds that reputedly cause cranial hemorrhaging and other damage to whales.
