Dead sperm whale with 100 kg of trash found on Scottish beach

Dec 03, 2019 12:23 IST

In a horrific incident, a dead sperm whale washed up on a Scottish beach with a '100 kg' litter ball in its stomach. Details of the 46-feet-long mammal were posted by a group called the Scottish Marine Animal Stranding Scheme on Facebook and serves as a stern reminder of the devastating effects of marine pollution. From fishing nets to ropes and plastic cups, debris comprised a whole lot of trash. However, it is not clear if that was the cause of death but it definitely may have caused some problems for the whale's digestion, say researchers.
