Whale Windfall

MOSCOW () -- A Russian poultry farm came up trumps when a three-ton whale washed up on a beach near the Arctic port city of Murmansk, Itar-Tass said Thursday.

Tass said the cash-strapped poultry farm had turned the whale into meat and bonemeal to feed its chickens.

"The incident came as a windfall for the farm, which is living through a serious financial crisis," it said.
