Environmental conservationists have voiced their "anger" following the discovery of 16kg of trash was discovered in the stomach of whale that was caught on the beach.

The cetacean female cuvier's beaked whale that measures just more than 5 meters long was found on an island in Messanges situated in the south of France located in the Atlantic coast.


The whale's partially decomposed body was discovered by passersby, and an autopsy performed by environmental conservation organizations Observatory and Itsas Arima discovered that it had consumed an huge quantities of plastics led to the whale's death.


They consist of shopping bags boxes of pasta, as well as crisp wrappers.


This waste lines the stomach's walls and intestines.

This can block the flow of blood and block nutrients from getting into the blood.



The autopsy determined that the whale was suffering from a parasitic disease which affected the kidneys of the animal, and that could have had an adverse effect on the hunter's activities.


Cuvier's beaked whales have been known to be avid hunter that dive for miles beneath the surface to seek for squid of various species as well as deep-sea and deep-sea fishing prey. However, experts believe that the disease would render the animal ineligible for hunting for food in the typical manner.



Instead it could have sucked with whatever it could locate near the surface of the water.
