Mr. Sampson and Audrey were on a date at the beach on Friday night, March 25th at a secluded beach cove outside of Beachville. Mr. Sampson was going to propose, even though he has been having affairs with 5 other women.
Not far away from the site, Claire (Mr. Sampson's other girlfriend) spots the two from her father's commercial fishing ship. She is not happy seeing this.
Angry, Claire takes out her father's gun from underneath the deck and fires a shot straight for Audrey.
Instead of hitting Audrey, she hit an innocent Ringed Bill Gull. Audrey and Mr. Sampson run away to their car and rush away from the beach due to the sound of the gunshot.
Claire's father hears the gunshot and tries to take the gun from Claire. This resulted in another gunshot, but it hit the deck of the ship, resulting in oil from the engine spilling into the water.
The oil spilling from the boat suffocated a nearby Humpback whale. Afterwards, the Humpback whale was washed ashore by a large wave, beaching near an abandoned picnic.
