In 2017, a Norwegian whale struggled to swim ashore, bent on death, no matter how much people helped it. After it died, the expert opened its belly, and the scene in front of him stunned everyone...
In the glow on the beach, people did not play and watch the scenery as usual, but silently spontaneously gathered together, regardless of the stench in the air, looking at a huge whale corpse in the distance, some people were in a daze, some were crying, and more people were praying for it...
This day, like every sunny day in the past, was not as harsh as the sun shone on the coastline of western Norway. Although this place is close to the Arctic Circle, it is affected by the warm Atlantic current, and it is not cold in winter and hot in summer, which is very livable.
When the short summer season comes, sunbathing locals and tourists alike gather on the beach to enjoy the pristine gifts of nature. Children who build castles out of sand and adults sweat on beach volleyball, and the laughter is intertwined, becoming the best lullaby in the ears of progressive young people who lie on the beach like seared egg cakes and pursue tanning.
Suddenly, terrified screams broke the relaxed atmosphere on the beach, offshore surfers and divers ran towards the shore with shouts, yachts floating at sea also rushed towards the shore, and people on the beach stopped their entertainment to ask what was going on.
The first wave of people who ran back didn't know why, they belonged to the wave that was notified of the danger and rushed back. It wasn't until the yacht landed a while that everyone got first-hand front-line news that it turned out to be a huge whale swimming towards the shore!
Everyone was also surprised when they heard it, like the kind of relatively large cetaceans that live in the deep sea area, how could they suddenly come to the shore?
As he spoke, a whale had already appeared at the junction of sea and sky in the distance, and it kept moving forward at a very fast speed. When it reached the shallow water, the people on the beach finally saw the size of the whale, which was at least 2000kg!
Because the whale is too large, and the shallow sea area is not only shallow, there is also a lot of debris and garbage in the water, and everyone can see the whale swaying bravely, and the body is already scarred.
This scene made many onlookers involuntarily exclaim, and some people even couldn't bear to cover their eyes. Someone has also called the marine authority because the whale is not normal to be visible to the naked eye.
Like a hill, it wants to squeeze its huge body onto the beach again and again, and its body is constantly rubbing on the rough sand, and blood is already oozing from it...
People have seen many fish stranded after being swept ashore by the waves, all wagging their tails, desperately trying to make themselves jump and jump back into the sea. But this is the first time we have seen a sea creature that is stubbornly going ashore, and it is still a whale.
In the various "Do not go ashore! "Go back to the sea!" With an exclamation, the whale finally managed to squeeze its body ashore. After landing on the shore, it seemed to have lost all its strength and lay there motionless.
The staff of the marine management department was already in place, and after seeing this scene, they immediately called to mobilize large equipment, and they must send the whale back to the ocean as soon as possible! The onlookers also began to spontaneously rush to the shore to draw water, pouring bucket after bucket on the huge body of the whale.
Everyone knows that this is just a drop in the bucket, but no one can watch a life pass away before their own eyes. Before getting closer, the wounds on the whale's body looked more clearly, and everyone who witnessed this scene was puzzled, did not understand what treasure was on the shore? Just attract whales?
After the equipment was in place, the professionals wasted a lot of effort to finally release the whale that had been stranded for a short time into the sea, which made the people on the beach can't help but applaud and cheer. But before the excited voice in the crowd fell, the familiar figure rushed towards the coast again...
When the large equipment failed to release the whale back into the ocean for the third time, there was silence on the beach. Everyone finally understood that the whale, which has a very high intelligence among animals, is looking for death today, and everyone thinks that saving and helping it is fundamentally a hindrance and disturbance.
Later, marine animal experts came one after another, and after careful observation and discussion, they came to the same opinion.
But the stranded whale did not die immediately, and finally, in order to alleviate its suffering and relieve it as soon as possible, under the gaze of everyone on the beach, professionals injected the whale with euthanasia ...
After the whale died, in order to prevent the appearance of the "whale explosion" phenomenon, experts immediately dissected it.
When the sky in the distance turns red as the sun sets, the belly of the whale is displayed in front of everyone, and inside is a variety of non-degradable plastic waste, plastic bags and bottles of various colors are intertwined, the visual impact is as daunting as the olfactory impact.
Oceanographers at the scene said that the swallowing of so much plastic waste was the direct cause of the whale's weakness and death.
Everyone waited until now to know the true cause of the whale's death, but now that they know the truth, no one can make a sound. It turned out that the culprit who killed it was everyone standing at the scene.
So the tears they left now, the emotions of grief for the pain of the whale before, all belong to the "tears of the crocodile"?
After this incident, in order to call on the public to protect the marine ecology and to mourn the dead whale, the local government placed a whale model on this beach, and its huge mouth was full of "plastic waste".
