RUSSIAN SPY WHALE IS MISSING! Hvaldimir the beluga is missing. {Norway}. Strange behaviour sparks concern for Russian 'spy whale' which has
A suspected trained Russian military whale who ‘escaped’ across the border to Norway earlier this year is now missing.

Speaking to Yahoo News Australia, Eve Jourdain from Norwegian Orca Survey is concerned because the 3.6m-long male beluga’s behaviour is normally predictable.

Ms Jourdain has issued a desperate plea that anyone who sights the whale contact Norwegian Orca Survey, so they can help lure him back to the safety of the harbour.

The whale, named Hvaldimir by Hammerfest locals, sparked global headlines in April this year when he appeared in Norway wearing a strange harness bearing the words ‘equipment of St Petersburg’.

Ms Jourdain said there is little doubt the whale came from a nearby military base in Murmansk, Russia.

Hvaldimir’s behaviour suggests he has been trained to pick up items dropped by divers.

“He loves retrieving items, so without asking he will go to the bottom of the sea and bring up a starfish,” she said.

The trained whale is unable to hunt for himself, so upwards of €16,000 (AU$25,000) has been spent supporting him - much of it on mackerel.

Reliant on humans, he would appear like clockwork for his feeding sessions with his official care group Norwegian Orca Survey.

Ms Jourdain said a witness saw a boat “luring him out” towards nearby islands.

Norwegian Orca survey then tracked the whale from 11:30pm to 4:00am on Friday night and found him in remote waters, outside of his normal territory.

Hvaldimir was located the following day at 2:00pm, but then he deep dived, was distracted by something, and did not surface.

“He’s a very acoustic animal - there’s so much going on in the water that’s not ours. It could be anything, orcas, or sounds from human activity,” she said.

Ms Jourdain is hoping someone will post a sighting of him to Facebook, so they can continue to support and feed him in the wild, until he can take care of himself.

I think they are after him because he is WHITE.










White whale’s fate subject to debate
July 21, 2019

The tame white whale known as Hvaldimir disappeared from his refuge in Hammerfest late last week, only to resurface Sunday near Alta, more than 50 kilometers away. Debate flew during the weekend over whether he should be escorted back to Hammerfest and cared for by researchers and minders, or allowed to chart his own course.

Questions are also swirling over how and why Hvaldimir left the harbour in Hammerfest, where he’s been fed and frolicking since he cozied up to a local fishing boat in April. The whale’s origins remain a mystery, but he clearly sought out human contact and remained keen on it even after being freed of straps he was wearing when Norwegian fishermen realized he needed help. It’a widely believed that he escaped from a research facility or marine park in Russia, leading the public to name him Hvaldimir in a playful reference to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Hval is the Norwegian word for whale.

He’s since become a mascot of sorts and attracted international attention as well. He was even hand-fed by Prime Minister Erna Solberg last month, during an official visit she made to Finnmark.

He’s been regularly fed fish by others as well, despite some researchers’ pleas that he learn to fend for himself. He seemed to fall ill last month but recovered and became a tourist attraction in Hammerfest’s harbour, until he suddenly swam away.

One of his supporters suspects he was lured away or scared away by people in boats. He was found in Kårhamn on Saturday, vanished again, and was observed near Altneset ourside Alta Sunday morning.

Plans to lure him back to Hammerfest were bashed Sunday by politician Claus Jørstad of the conservative Progress Party, who equated the plans to “whale-happing.” He thinks Hvaldimir should be left alone: “If you want to keep a whale in captivity, he should rather be sent to a place where he’s safe and cared for,” Jørstad told state broadcaster NRK. “Right now the whale is being used purely for entertainment pirposes without optimal safety.”

Others claim the whale can’t fend for himself and will suffer if not fed. His fate will ultimately

Did you execute the whale into hell with a hydrocodone/Masterson/single six trick?
