    Authorities in France are investigating ways to dispose of a beached whale, which could explode due to a build up of gases inside the carcass.

    The 15-tonne whale washed up on a beach on the south coast of France earlier this month.

    It is believed to have died out at sea before washing up on the shore at Saintes-Marie-de-la-Mer, near Montpellier, BFMTV has reported.

    Now, officials are looking into ways of removing the whale, including one option of using dynamite to blow it up at sea.

    Other options include removing the whale using a crane on land, The Local has reported.

    The area around the whale has now been closed off to the public.

    Anas Cheiron, project manager of the national reserve of Camargue, told newspaper Midi Libre, as translated by The Local: "Because of the heat, gases form inside the cadaver hence, the bulging appearance of the whale and accumulate until they explode."
