Beached whales

I just read about the beached whales in Tasmania. It’s very sad. Apparently only 108 out of roughly 350 survived. There was more that I don’t want to quote, so I’ll just get to the point of this post. The news article referred to the dead whales as ‘cadavers’. I don’t like that. It’s so cold and distancing. Dead animals have bodies too, so why not call them that? Isn’t that enough? What do you think?
