Interesting people...

So I'm running up the stairs (okay, maybe just walking...), and there's a man coming down holding this 4-foot-long, triangular, flag-like item that has hairs coming off of it. It's dark grey with lighter grey stripes, and only about eight inches at the wide end tapering to a very thin point. Any guesses what it was? I stopped and commented on it, and he said he'd been a part of a baleen whale harvest (by the looks of the tooth he was carrying, it was probably a right whale) last tuesday. Pretty cool!
