Pilot whale died after eating plastic bags

An autopsy found 80 bags and other plastic items, weighing around 17 lbs lodged in the whale's stomach, which made it impossible for the mammal to eat food, marine experts said.

This handout picture from ThaiWhales, a private whale conservation group, taken on May 28, 2018 and released on June 2, 2018 shows volunteers and governmment marine veterinarians rescuing a sick male pilot whale in Songkhla.

According to the BBC, the whale vomited up five plastic bags as conservationists tried unsuccessfully to save the whale on Friday.

According to NBC News, the head of Thailand's Marine and Coastal Resources Department said the whale probably thought the floating plastic bags were pieces of food.

Last month, the Thai government said it was considering a levy on disposable plastic shopping bags.

"If you have 80 plastic bags in your stomach, you die", Thon Thamrongnawasawat, a marine biologist, told The Independent.

A pilot whale died last week in southern Thailand after eating more than 80 plastic bags and other debris, Agence France-Presse reports.

Thailand is one of the world's largest consumers of plastic bags, which kill hundreds of marine creatures living near the country's popular beaches each year.

"We found a lot of plastic bags in the stomach, I think around 85 plastic bags", explained Dr Watchara Sakornwimon.

It was unclear whether the whale was a short-finned or long-finned pilot whale, although short-finned pilots commonly traverse the warmer waters typical of Southeast Asia.

'Because its the ocean and he's a whale he can travel around the world.
