George Thornton,
whale blaster
Associated Press
GRANTS PASS, Ore. — An Oregon highway engineer whose 1970
decision to use a half-ton of dynamite to blast away a beached dead
whale became an Internet sensation has died. George Thomas
Thornton was 84.
The Oregon Department of
Transportation said Thornton was
a highly respected engineer who
worked for the agency for 37 years.
In November 1970, he got the
call to remove a 45-foot-long sperm
whale that washed up near Florence. He decided to use dynamite
to disintegrate the animal. The
blast rained down pieces of whale
that covered spectators and flattened the roof of a car.
