    Russian beluga whale spy “turns in” to Norwegian fishing vessels

    The tame beluga repeatedly approached Norwegian boats off Ingoya, an Arctic island about 415km from Murmansk, where Russia's Northern Fleet is based

    A beluga whale found off Norway's coast wearing a special Russian harness was probably trained by the Russian navy, a Norwegian expert says. Marine biologist Prof Audun Rikardsen said the harness had a GoPro camera holder and a label sourcing it to St Petersburg. A Norwegian fisherman managed to remove it from the whale.
