The small male pilot whale was found barely alive in a canal near the border with Malaysia, the country's department of marine and coastal resources said.
Just some of the plastic bags removed from the stomach of a pilot whale that couldn't be rescued in Thailand.
The whale was found to have an additional 80 items in its stomach, including bags and other pieces of plastic trash, weighing more than 17 pounds, Reuters reported.
A pilot whale that died after ingesting rubbish has highlighted Thailand's losing battle against plastic, said conservationists who called for urgent measures to cut back on pollution that also worsens urban flooding.

The department's chief theorized that the whale had mistaken the plastic bags for food, but after eating them had become "sick and unable to hunt for food", Reuters reports.

The department said the total weight of all the plastics found in the animal was 18 lbs (8 kg).
