TAINAN, Taiwan - Folks in Taiwan wish the insides of a whale had stayed there. People covered their noses and business came to a halt after a dead, decomposing whale being transported on a truck burst because of a gas buildup.

The 56-foot long sperm whale was being transported through city streets on the truck after it was found beached during the weekend. It was being hauled to a university where scientists were going to try to find out how it died.

Right in the middle of traffic, the carcass exploded splattering its innards across the street.

Experts believe the explosion happened probably because of gases building up in the dead mammal's collapsed stomach.

Shopkeepers closed up so they could scrub away the malodorous mess of blood, blubber and entrails.
