Killer whale captured
It seems that a whale was indeed caught in Russia.
If it survives the interim period, who knows what park it will end up at eventually. I will keep you updated with any information I find on this.
“Following rumours, we confirmed today that at least two orcas were captured in August in the Western Okhotsk Sea near Reineke Island by Sochi Dolphinarium. One of them is either dead or released. Another orca was transported to Vladivostok. That’s all we know for now, trying to find out more. Tell us what you think and we’ll get the message to Sochi Dolphinarium”.
