Mystery Globsters Don't Go Away

This piece of footage is doing the rounds.

According to The Telegraph online article by :

Mystery saggy-skinned sea creature washes up on Mexico beach

Baffling footage shows a four-metre long unidentified sea creature washed up on a beach in Acapulco, Mexico
A large unidentified sea creature was discovered washed up on a beach in Acapulco, Mexico on Wednesday.
The beast measured four meters in length and is believed to have died a short while before washing ashore.

Footage shows a person prodding at what appears to be the being's saggy flesh.
A spokesperson for the Civil Protection and Fire in Acapulco said Mexico’s Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (PROFEPA) has been informed of the discovery.
So, "is believed to have died a short while before washing ashore" -says who? How do they know? Was the expert -if there was one which I highly doubt- a marine biologist?  Are all members of Civil Protection and Fire Acapulco trained to identify all sea creatures in case they wash ashore?
A very large heap of bovine excrement can be detected here.  See the "fibre-like" pieces of the creature?  Take a very good look and watch the video.  
Anyone who has ever looked into the subject of "Globsters" ("What's a 'globster'?" -look at the photo and watch the video) will have seen this all before.  From the one found near St. Augustine, Florida, in 1896 to the Tasmanian globster of 1960 -and many, many others ever since the signs are all there. "Hairs"/"Fibre-like" strands and skin texture.

These globsters were what was left of whales. Everything left of a dying whale would be eaten by sharks, squid, octopusses and any other fish that wanted a meal.   In fact, the dead whale is extremely valuable to sea life, more so than was once thought. For "What Happens To Whales When They Die?" check this site out: 
Gasses building up could see the carcass rise and get washed ashore -it's a long process and dead whales are not "eaten out" as they float in the water.  For that reason to state  "is believed to have died a short while before washing ashore"  is not anything a marine biologist nor naturalist would state because it is a nonsense.
Don't get me wrong, I think that we need to know more about these finds and anyone who finds something "unidentified" on a beach should try to take as many photographs as well as video footage as they can. You see, despite the fakery and mis-identifications, one day a real and genuinely unidentified sea creature could turn up. We do not want to ignore those or dismiss it simply as "whale carcass"!
