And in-in the early 1970's, this is kind of an interesting story, I had been at Texas Tech maybe six months, and the sheriff of Freeport County called me 00:14:03 - 2235and he said, Doctor, he said, there's a big whale down here on the beach and somebody told me that you Aggies might want it. Well, I had never seen a whale, I had only seen the ocean a few times in my life, I mean, I grew up out here in Hockley County, so I didn't know what the ocean was like. So I-I jumped in a pickup truck with my graduate student and we took off to drive to Freeport. And we got to Freeport, and I-I had called the sheriff and said, we're coming down to get that whale. We turned left on the beach 00:14:38 - 2235there and we were going along and all of a sudden I saw cars everywhere, news media, and there was a crane there. And this was a huge Right whale that had washed ashore and I pulled up next to it in this little pickup truck. And the sheriff was just-he just couldn't believe it, he was just dying laughing and-and I said, well, we didn't really come to get it, we came to bury it. Photograph it and bury it. So, we did that and turned out to be the only record in the Gulf of Mexico, ever, of a Right whale. But I went00:15:12 - 2235home that night, I turned on the television, and the news anchor came on from one of the Houston stations and said, well, he said, you need to stay tuned, folks, we're going to tell you about the Aggie prof that went to get a ten-ton whale in a half-ton pickup. So it became kind of a-it-it was kind of a joke and it was funny, but it got me very interested in marine mammals. And it convinced me that picking up stranded animals was a great way to get information about marine mammals.
