A 44-foot sperm whale washed up on Redcar beach early on Tuesday. A rescue attempt failed and now officials are planning on cutting up the dead carcass in order to remove it, since heavy lifting equipment failed due to the whale's weight.
Indiana end times preacher Paul Begley felt compelled to issue a "prophecy alert." Saying that whales washed up dead along the shores of New Zealand before the Christchurch earthquake, it is possible that this whale was a sign of an upcoming earthquake in England. He said he did not know for sure if this meant that an earthquake was coming and did not intend to spread fear, but felt compelled to issue the "prophecy alert" so that people may find Christ and be saved.
