Golf Ball Found In Stomach Of Gray Whale
By mustang6560 on 4/25/12
A dead 37-foot gray whale was discovered on the shores of the Puget Sound near Seattle, Washington, and biologists were surprised to find a golf ball among the debris in its stomach.
A gray whale found dead in Washington state's Puget Sound had been feeding on shrimp and also had some debris, including a golf ball, in its stomach, but scientists don't know what killed the animal.

The stomach examination Monday found the shrimp, woody debris, algae, pieces of rope and plastic, the golf ball and some flat spongy material, NOAA Fisheries said.
Did you immediately think of the Seinfeld episode "The Marine Biologist" where Kramer hits golf balls into the ocean, and it's later discovered that one of the golf balls ended up in the blowhole of a whale?

Classic.

More cruise ships need to start using the lobster shell ball made to disolve after being hit into the ocean. As they said, they don't know what made the whale die but I'd hate the idea that it was a golf ball that might have done it.
