A Whale Wearing Harness Found By Norwegian Fishermen Is Suspected To Be a Russian Military Spy

The beluga whale was discovered by fishermen off the island of Ingøya in Norway and It is believed that the whale escaped a Russian naval base in the region. Inside the harness, which has now been removed from the whale, was a Go-Pro camera with the words "Equipment of St. Petersburg". Marine experts believe the whale was trained by the Russian navy as part of a programme to use underwater mammals as a special ops force. The fisherman said the whale was very tame and seemed used to human beings: "We were going to put out nets when we saw a whale swimming between the boats," fisherman Joar Hesten told Norwegian broadcaster NRK. "It came over to us, and as it approached, we saw that it had some sort of harness on it."
