Generally a country has many hidden and deadly weapons, which they take out from its arsenal when needed. Similarly a recent incident in Norway puts a stamp on this. A fisherman in Norway caught a Beluga Whale in north Norway from which a harness was recovered.
According to the experts in Norway, the harness recovered from the unusually friendly white whale indicates the animal had been trained by the Russian navy as part of a marine mammal special force.
The experts also added that the harness, which had the words “Equipment of St. Petersburg” labeled on it, could be used to attach cameras or other instruments.
The whale was first seen in waters off Finmark- Norway’s most northerly county which borders Russia.
According to, Joar Hesten, 26-year-old fisherman, the whale had repeatedly sought them out, and they spotted it had a harness on which it was apparently trying to rub off against the hulls of their boats.
According to Audun Rikardsen, professor at the department of Arctic and marine Biology at the University of Tromso, that if the harness on the whale is from a long time then it is not good for it.
However, Russia researchers refuted this and said that the beluga had nothing to do with them. “They tell me that most likely is the Russian navy that has done this,” Audun added.
Both the US and Russia trained marine mammals including whale, dolphins, sea lions and seals during the Cold War, Vietnam war and Iraq war.
