Because the body was not whole anymore, the authority could not do necropsy. After checking on its condition, they found an unusual thing in its stomach. They found 5,9 kilogram plastic waste inside the whale’s stomach, specifically: 140 gram hard plastic, 150 gram plastic bottle, 260 gram plastic bag, 270 gram flip-flop, 3,26 kg raffia string and 750 gram plastic cup.

The sperm whale was buried on Tuesday, November 20th. World Wildlife Fund told people to reduce plastic waste.
