Golf Ball Found Inside Dead Whale, Marine Biologist Called In To Investigate

A gray whale found dead in Washington state’s Puget Sound had been feeding on shrimp and also had some debris, including a golf ball, in its stomach, but scientists don’t know what killed the animal.

The stomach examination Monday found the shrimp, woody debris, algae, pieces of rope and plastic, the golf ball and some flat spongy material, NOAA Fisheries said.

The garbage was minimal and not the cause of death, which remains under investigation with tissue tests, spokesman Brian Gorman said. It’s common for whales to pick up debris near urban areas because they are filter feeders. There were no signs of trauma or entanglement on the whale, he said.

The sea was angry that day, my friend..

    There is a common question that many golf players often asked which is about golf balls for beginners and the question is always the same in each level of the play. Well, there are several aspects that you should look after while choosing the golf balls for beginners’ level. First you have to find out in which level you want to start your play (it may be beginners’ level or advanced level) and secondly you need to determine how you want to play this game and thirdly which type of ball you expect. Well, the knowledge about these things is very vital as this will help you to play this game better way. -
