A sperm whale, which stranded and died on the shore of an island in Scotland “blew up” when the animal has been opened up for a necropsy to be carried out. However, what the researchers found, the inside was even more surprising: a 220-pound ball of garbage in its stomach.

In the male, the young whales were discovered Oct. 28, on the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides, and the Scottish Marine Animal Stranding Scheme (SMASS) said on Facebook. He said that the research of the group is not in a position to get the whales for up to 48 hours later.

The group has posted a very shocking video, which showed the whale’s guts out on the side, after that, researchers cut into the sea-creature, before a necropsy can be performed.

Whales are well insulated, due to their size, allowing for their bodies to stay warm in the near freezing temperatures, and decompose very, very quickly, the group said. This sometimes leads to their death, “explode.”

But the ball was what really shocked the researchers.

Wrapped up in a giant ball of various waste, including the parts of the network, bundles of rope, plastic cups, bags, gloves, straps, and piping, which came out to weigh about 220 pounds, the group said. The SMASS shared a graphic photo of the discovery on its Facebook page.

The animal did not seem to be in a bad state, and the SMASS said. While it is possible that the garbage ball is a factor in the sperm-whale live stranding of whales, the group said that it was not able to find the evidence hidden in her body.

“This amount of plastic in its stomach is still terrible, should have been compromised the digestive system, and should be, in order to demonstrate, yet again, with the danger that marine litter and lost or discarded fishing gear can cause to marine life.”

The organization said that the trash came from, “the agriculture and fisheries sectors, and can be consumed in anywhere from Norway to the Azores archipelago, located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean on the west coast of Portugal.

You can’t move a 20-ton marine mammal, and elsewhere, administration officials were buried on the beach, SMASS, said.

The group said that they were going to have to investigate as to why, the sea creature could have been so much waste in the stomach.
