13 Whales Washed Up Dead on the Shores of Germany. What We Found Is Horrifying
IN THE FIRST TWO MONTHS OF THIS YEAR, 13 sperm whales washed up on the shores of Northern Germany. It’s believed that they mistakenly ended up in the North Sea, which is too shallow for sperm whales, and became disoriented. An autopsy eventually found that the cause of death was heart failure. That alone is enough of a tragedy, though a relatively innocent one. But what else they found during the autopsy was deeply disturbing.
