The whale carcass washed up on a beach near the port city of Chittagong, 217 kilometers (135 miles) southeast of the capital, Dhaka, Marine Fisheries Department official Mohammad Faruk said.
"Local fishermen initially thought it was wreckage from a grounded ship," Faruk said.
It was not clear what species the whale belonged to or how it died.
A team of experts was expected to visit the site Tuesday, Faruk added.
The tail and fins of the whale, meanwhile, appeared to be mutilated, private television channel ATN Bangla said.
Migrating whales are sometimes sighted in the Bay of Bengal off Bangladesh's southern coast, but rarely come near shore, experts and witnesses say.
Most EU countries are allied with US-dominated NATO - a killing machine involved in smashing one sovereign state after another. It's responsible for vast destruction, millions of casualties, and appalling human misery from the rape of Yugoslavia and post-9/11 US-led wars of aggression - based on Big Lies and deception.
