A young black bear feast on a beached Minke whale

I was told by a neighbor a Minke whale beached a few kilometers from my home. I decided to take my camera to document this unfortunate story. The whale was on the other end of the beach. As I was going to go there, I saw a young black bear coming and starting to feast on the whale. I kept myself hidden at some distance and managed to take a few photos.
