Russian Spy Whale Retrieves iPhone
Fishermen off Norway's northern coast were astonished last week when they spotted a beluga whale wearing a harness, complete with mounts for a camera. Marine experts believe it was trained by the Russian military. Its harness appeared "specially made," with "mounts for GoPro cameras on each side of it," said Jorgen Ree Wiig, a marine biologist at Norway's Directorate of Fisheries.The harness clips read "Equipment St. Petersburg." Wiig believes the whale came from Murmansk, Russia, and was trained by the Russian navy.
When a couple of friends visited the whale "Hvaldimir" on the Hammerfest dock, one lost their iPhone in the water, and the whale returns it.
