BROOKINGS, Ore. — A half ton of stinking mink carcasses spilled into the boat basin at the Port of Brookings Harbor on the Southern Oregon Coast.
Port manager Ted Fitzgerald said Thursday they got it all cleaned up, but the smell was so bad it was tough to get near the port for awhile.
Fitzgerald said crab fishermen have their own secret ingredients for bait, and mink carcasses are one of them.
He said one fisherman was taking his leftovers out to sea to dump on Wednesday when some of the load spilled in the boat basin, and the port had to clean it up.
State police spokesman Lt. Gregg Hastings said they are investigating whether any laws were broken.
