On Thursday night, a whale which is 30-foot in length is said to be washed up on the Juhu beach in Mumbai. The weight of the whale is approximately 4 tonnes. The whale was spotted after 10 pm common public. Police and forest department officials are examining the animal, which experts say is a Bryde's whale, has been dead for two or three days.
"There could be many reasons - sound pollution under water, pollution from industries, plastic consumption, or even disease, since the animal has no external injuries," said Animesh Limaye, an expert from Reefwatch India.
