A report out of southern Spain says a sperm whale that washed up on a beach had a lot of garbage in its stomach.  Much of the 64 pounds of trash scientists found in the whale's stomach was plastic like garbage bags.  There were also ropes and pieces of netting in it.  Officials determined that it likely died because it couldn't digest the garbage.  Because of the what was found in the whale, officials in the area are holding events to help clean up its beaches.
