Can you imagine how much work it was to get that thing from the surf to the bed of that truck? And how horribly slimy and stinky that work was? I'm guessing the glee was of the "fuck yeah we're done!" variety. Besides, its just a whale. If you spend a lot of time around the ocean you see dead creatures all the time. If you had her job and got emotionally devastated over every dead whale, sea lion, seal or dolphin you'd probably be pretty miserable.
