Twitter just cannot get over the ‘Russian spy whale’
Social media users have been enthralled by a so-called ‘Russian spy whale’ that was recently spotted in Norwegian waters. Agent Belugov, your cover is blown!
The beluga whale first approached a fishing boat off the coast of Norway’s Ingoya Island, wearing a harness with a GoPro camera attached. The strange discovery soon prompted speculation that the whale was a trained infiltrator.Also on rt.com Well done, Comrade Belugov! Did ‘Russian Navy whale’ trick Norwegians into seizing spy harness?
Twitter had a ball with the idea.

Perhaps our aquatic double agent would make for a good pet?

Others found the theory to be...interesting.
So this whale is either a trained Russian asset, or it recently escaped from SeaWorld pic.twitter.com/GG8L8wTjps— Joe Adinolfi (@jsadinolfi) May 2, 2019
