Mysterious Remains of A Whale Found in a Field in Utah

Farmington| A dairy farmer from a small town near the Great Salt Lake in Utah made an incredible discovery on his property while he was looking for one of his cows that had not returned.

69-year-old Michael Woodson, found a 12-meter-long humpback whale laying lifeless in the middle of one of his fields, hundreds of kilometers away from its natural habitat.

The Farmington City Police was called on the site to investigate since the farmer thought that the cetacean could have been left there as a creepy prank by some neighborhood youngsters.

The investigators rapidly dismissed the possibility, however, as no traces of vehicles or machinery large enough to carry it were found anywhere near the animal.

The police admit that they are almost clueless at the moment as to how the marine mammal found its way on Mr. Woodson’s property.


“We have to admit that we find this case very puzzling,” said Captain Terry Dawson from the Farmington police. “It is certainly the first time that we see anything like this in our city, and we have very little information for now as to how the animal got there.”

A few witnesses have reported seeing some strange flying object in the area over the last two days and the authorities have confirmed that the 911 operators have received a few dozen calls from all over the region reporting such sightings, but they refuse to link both events for the moment.

“We are verifying every clue and information that we have, and I assure you that we will explore every other possibility before we conclude that a UFO has anything to do with the case” added Captain Dawson.

Michael Woodson found the gigantic animal in his field

Michael Woodson still believes that some neighborhood youngsters placed the 25-ton animal there as a prank.

A team of biologists from the University of Utah has already been called on the site to examine the body of the whale and realize various tests and analysis before it is removed from Mr. Woodson’s property.

The scientists are trying to determine if the animal could have actually lived in the Great Salt Lake which is only a few kilometers away from the farm.

The various police forces of the area are now asking the public to report any information that could prove helpful in solving this strange case.

Anyone that might possess any information on the case is asked to contact the  Farmington City Police, which is in charge of the investigation.

  1. Was there a potted plant anywhere nearby?

  2. HAARP

  3. Anyone thinking hitch hikers guide to the galaxy

  4. It went for a walk from the Lake, lost it’s walking stick, slipped and fell. OR was it pushed? Any storms there lately? And people thought ‘Sharknado’ was a comedy. ‘Whalenado’, coming to a theatre near you way TOOOO soon.

    • “Help I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!”

    • Its a shame he didn’t have life alert

    • walk from the lake???? that lake is to salty to sustain any life except the brine shrimp

    • A humpback just washed up on Saltwater Beach three months ago.

    • Hey Stew, once again, is world news. the base in journalism is clear comunication. it wouldn’t be called world news if the atempt to comunicate was only targeted with just the USA. And by the way, this is the primary reason as to why the USA has a disrespectful image… cause of people like yourself.

  5. any tornadoes lately?

    • Why use Kilometers rather than miles, yards or feet. This is still in the USA.

    • theworldisnottheusa | December 8, 2014 at 12:41 am |

      because the f’ing rest of the world uses kilometers. Go eat more bacon you redneck fuck.

    • To Pam Dahle | December 8, 2014 at 12:42 am |

      Because~98% of the world nations uses kilometers, this is world news daily site not usa news…

      theworldisnottheusa what a sad little universe you must reside in. Ask your Mommy to please open a window in her basement so you can catch up with the rest of mankind. What a sorry little assmaggot you are.

    • You had the same idea as me Eric. Whalenado anyone?

    • Gaylen Walker | December 8, 2014 at 6:05 am |

      Still trying to figure out how coral castle was moved.

    • We don’t get tornadoes here, except for one small on in 1999. We are pretty sheltered from large natural catastrophes in general – earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc.

    • What a lot of disgusting human beings. It was an honest question about why kilometers were used instead of miles, and rather than acting like adults and simply answering the questions, a number of individuals felt the need to belittle, insult, and deride this person. Courtesy never killed anyone. I can’t imagine living a life where every interaction is met with loathing and hatred of the anyone who fails to measure up to your standards. There’s no way you’d speak like that to another person face to face, which says a lot about who you are as a human being (I use that term loosely).

      unstead of talking about the difference between Km and miles it will better talking about this musterious thing

    • Celeste Martinez | December 8, 2014 at 5:53 pm |

      All Pam Dahle did was ask a question. The vile responses make more of a statement as to the kind of person YOU are sitting behind your keyboard. Yes the rest of the world uses Kilometers because Americans as a whole found it too difficult to switch to when it was taught in schools. She wasn’t the reason for it. Get a life, get a clue and get some manners! You aren’t making us “rude” Americans look any better!

    • Hey Kilometers…do you like Freedom? Just say “Thank you” and shut your metric sized pie hole.

    • Pam Dahle….I AGREE! THIS IS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!!NOT THE “REST OF THE WORLD”. I don’t care what the rest of the world uses to measure things. IN THE UNITED STATES WE USE INCHES, FEET. Other than that, the obvious is being overlooked because ”
      they” refuse to associate it with this incident. NO tracks… putting the what there? You gotta be kidding.

      A whale! wow That is something you don’t see every day. Curious.

    • When we became a nation to show our contempt for the British and to be a unique nation unto ourselves we created our own system of measurements. The comments are those of anti-American sissies and traitors who so often spent years in universities in order to display their contempt for the nation that nurtures and protects them.

    • FlashingScotsman | December 8, 2014 at 9:59 pm |

      That was quite a stroke of brilliance Stew. Coming up with an entirely inferior system of measuring everything, just to show our independence. I figured kicking England’s butt in the war would be enough.

    • Scotsman, I noticed your people just voted to remain under England’s thumb. How smart is that. We’ve taken the road less traveled and you still kowtow to your English masters.

    • lol, they insult because their 3 inch manhood sound better as 7.62 cm. The loudest ones are always the one compensating for other issues.

    • They aren’t UFOs after all, just flying whales!!!

    • How come idiots are arguing over measurements instead of questioning how the damn whale got there, your all morons!!

    • Chad Kreuger | December 9, 2014 at 3:06 am |

      So sorry that my fellow Americans posting here sound ignorant. You see, mankind is regionally focused, and our country is nearly as large as Europe as a whole. Besides the UK and Germany, I generally don’t care about whats going on in Europe. Also, I think swedes are pretty cool as well. P.S. You’re all welcome for all the freedom, remember if it weren’t for my ancestors most of you would be speaking German living in a Socialist world. ‘Merica

    • whales use kilometers.. thats why..

    • International System of Units | December 9, 2014 at 2:57 pm |

      “Why use Kilometers rather than miles, yards or feet. This is still in the USA”

      Because your metric system it’s pathetic.

    • Whalenado!

    • frank papcin | December 9, 2014 at 3:29 pm |

      interesting that this went from a whale to someone insulting someone else for asking a question?–how low this country is sinking because of OBAMA and his politically correct liberals that always insults anyone who dares to question anything
      –me–how did the whale get there, and where did it come from, and why?–
      –you liberal know it alls can go back to that dark place you love so much

    • How many kilometers in a mile? Kidding. How many humpback whales are there in Utah. Zero?

    • Stew11,

      For the record, Britain does not (and has never) used metric measurement. They measure in inches, yards and miles just like we do…

    • We are all going global.. U.S is a state within a greater Federation now.. So everyone is going to have to learn the metric system.. Don’t worry it’s not that hard a transition.

    • The US switched to metric (kilometers) in 1978. The govt. however never had the nerve to tell everyone (redneck reaction probably). It made life easier for American manufacturers who ship worldwide as pretty every other country uses metric. Check your Mountain Dew label or Twinkie and you’ll see mililitres, grams etc.

    • Reason for using metric system in the news article: the scientific community as a whole, even biologists in Utah/United States, record data in metric.

    • Watch your filthy language everyone!!!!!

    • They’re using KM and Meters because the organization that wrote the article is based in Tel Aviv, Israel.

    • I wonder how many stones that thing weighs?

    • I done it i drug the wale by my self just to mess with the old man

    • Rick Cowan –

      We certainly do not measure everything in inches and yards; anyone over 60 probably does, anyone 30+ uses a mixture (we think of a person’s weight in stones and pounds but probably measure food ingredients in grams), and youngsters tend to use metric only. Apart from distances – for some reason we’re ALL stuck on miles!

    • Unique thing is, they use km for length but used Ton instead of kg. Just like Puerto Rico, speed limit is in mph, but all distance signs are in kms. I guess they can’t make up their minds?

    • Did he ever find the cow?

    • Ok where was it being transported to and from?? What aquarium lost a whale in transportation.

    • The farmer hasn’t see a pot of Petunia near the whale? 😉 Maybe it’s the Earth 2? Just no one can remember a thing?

    • Why use (Kilometers) Metric system as the unit measurement in the US? Because it is OUR standard unit of measurement in the US. In 1875 the United States of America Congress adopted the use of the metric system. Of course with our government, we are still trying to implement the metric system. It should happen about the same time as congress balances the budget.
