Facts Analysis:

Pictures, stories and also videos in circulation online purport to show that a massive, 50-foot Dead Whale Washed Up in Central Paris, on the banks of Seine River – to Shock People. Although the incident portrayed appears true, and some viewers were in fact shocked to see, what is shown and said about the ‘beached whale’ is not a fact.

Has Dead Whale Washed Up in Central Paris?

The massive sea mammal shown to have washed up on the banks of Seine River is said to have happened in Paris on 21 July 2017. It was suggested that the ‘beached whale’ in Paris lost its way from Ocean and swam up the river from the opening near Le Havre. The video allegedly shows marine scientists and authorities from International Whale Association examining the whale and the very unusual occurrence. Some Parisians passing by and tourists in fact stopped to look at the incident and took pictures of it, believing it to be real.

Art Installation, Not Real

Yes, the realistic life size ‘beached whale’ was actually an Art installation done by a group of Belgian artists who staged the incident to get people thinking about the impact mankind has on the environment. The ‘scientists’ seen in the video were actually performers, and the International Whale Association does not exist. The art installation was planned to stay put over that weekend in July 2017 before moving it to another European capital.

So the claim that an actual Dead Whale Washed Up in Central Paris, on the banks of River Seine is a hoax. Nonetheless, as told in the video to raise awareness among public, man is changing the shape of the planet, altering the form and the content of the water. The group of artists also raised a genuine question whether we have to do something about it.
