(Bangkok) — Officials in Thailand say the stomach of a pilot whale was jammed with plastic trash before it died last week. An official with the Marine and Coastal Resources Department said some 80 pieces of plastic rubbish weighing about 17 pounds were found in the stomach of the whale. The whale was discovered in a canal last Monday and veterinarians worked five days to save it. The whale regurgitated five plastic bags Friday and later died. The rest of the bags and plastic items were found in its stomach during an autopsy.
