But back to the trapped orca. According to CBC.ca, "more than a dozen killer whales are stranded at a breathing hole in the ice near Inukjuak, Que." There's also an article on Digital Journal and a video of the trapped killer whales on YouTube.
This story is all too familiar, and harkens back to the Drew Barrymore film Big Miracle (2012). Let's hope this real life drama unfolding in Nunavik has an equally happy ending as the Hollywood version.
