It is unclear who — media or source — is hazy on the concept of taxonomic kingdoms, although it's clearly the media outlet which is hazy on the concept of "solved".
Mammal Mystery Solved
February 22, 2010
DFO officers have investigated the remains of a marine animal that washed up on a beach at Lower Cove on the west coast of the province. DFO says judging from the reported length of the carcass, the state and shape of the decomposed matter, it is likely that the remains are that of a small whale - such as a minke or a basking shark. A tissue sample of the carcass was taken and will be examined by DFO to try and fully identify the animal.
