What do we have here? A lesson in kindness, perhaps? This news is pretty surprising after whales have been killed by human hands for years and years.
We’re talking about the news of a beluga whale who recently became the hero of the day after he returned a woman’s cell phone when it fell into a waterfront at Hammerfest, Norway.
The beluga whale in question was actually not supposed to be there ans was a stranger that suddenly appeared in the scene and reportedly trained by Russia. A defected underwater spy? A KGB assassin, maybe?
A little different that most Russian spies however, this whale actually has a heart and appears very considerate.
Ina Mansikal, a Nowegian student was out trying to catch a glimpse of the famed ‘spy whale’ but she got a completely different experience all together. Ina leaned over the edge of the water a little too much and her phone slipped from her jacket pocket. What happened next was truly astonishing. The whale actually came to the rescue and retrieved the phone!
You can just imagine Ina’s joy after the whale retrieved the now water damaged cell phone. She assumed the phone was lost forever but after a short while, the famous picked it from the lake bed and kept it in his mouth. Ina absolutely loves animals, she proclaims and was completely flabbergasted when the whale showed extreme generosity.
Beluga whales have grown so accustomed to humans and this might be the reason for their show of intrigue and friendliness towards us. The Washington Post states, the marine authority of Norway is considering finding the whale a sanctuary in the Icelandic waters, where it was probably taken from.
To be honest, this really would be the least they could do for this generous, loving whale, given that it did the same. It showed an emotion that was simply thought to be human and not that of an animal.
