Washed up killer whale is most polluted animal on earth

A dead killer whale that washed up on the shore of a Scottish island last January was the most polluted animal ever seen on Earth, according to a newly released report. The whale had the highest levels of polychlorinated biphenals, or PBCs, ever recorded in an animal, according to the Scottish Marine Animal Stranding Scheme.
An analysis of the orca, who scientists named Lulu, revealed that her blubber had concentrations of PBC 100 time higher than the threshold for marine mammals. And despite being at least 20 years old, the whales ovaries showed she had never reproduced, likely the result of such a toxic concentration of pollutants in her body.
