That whale was clearly hit by a ship. You can see the impact marks on the side of the whale.

As long as the death is natural or "accidental"(Collision with a ship), it's understandable.

If it was the result of whaling,....

I watched a recent documentary on Sperm Whales in which an autopsy was performed on a dead whale.

The cause of death was a to go coffee cup lid blocking the intestines, likely ingested while eating in the Geat Pacific Garbage Patch - that spans from Japan to the US.

Sad for the whale, happy for all of the other creatures that are going to be sustained by its remains.
