World's worst souvenir: Dead whale parts

Here's something I didn't know ... It's a federal crime to steal body parts off dead whales. We now know this because Oregon police are looking for whoever stole skin and baleen off a beached whale there. Baleen used to be used in women's corsets and buggy whips, so I'm not sure what the profit motive is here.
