The use of white beluga whale,  seals,  and dolphins by Russian navy as special ops force!

Norwegian fishermen are left bewildered. They saw a white beluga whale with a strange harness which marine experts of Norway believe is of Russian origin and part of the program of the Russian navy to use water mammals as part of special ops force.

Norwegian fishermen and the white beluga whale with a special harness

The fishermen of the village of Inga in Norway last week saw a white beluga whale that was harassing their fishing boats. On closer look, they found that it had a special tight harness. A fisherman Joar Hester said:

“We were going to put out nets when we saw a whale swimming between the boats,”

“It came over to us, and as it approached, we saw that it had some sort of harness on it.”

The whale was pulling the straps and ropes on the sides of the fishing boat. It seemed quite tame and used to human beings. It seemed that the harness was for some camera or weapon.

Reports from marine experts

The marine experts felt that the whale has, some military-level training, most probably from neighboring Russia. They caught the whale and removed its harness to find the following words inscribed on it:

“Equipment of St. Petersburg”

Martin Biuw of the Institute of Marine Research in Norway opined:

“If this whale comes from Russia – and there is great reason to believe it – then it is not Russian scientists, but rather the navy that has done this,”

Audun Rikardsen, professor at the department of arctic and marine biology at the Arctic University of Norway (UiT) stated:

“We know that in Russia they have had domestic whales in captivity and also that some of these have apparently been released. Then they often seek out boats.”

He contacted Russian researchers who denied that the whale belonged to them. Audun said:

“They tell me that most likely is the Russian navy in Murmansk,”

The Russian program of using water mammals

Russian army in the 1980s had special dolphin training for military use. They were used as underwater tools for weapon detection due to their razor-sharp vision, stealth, and good memory.

This program ceased after a decade. But in 2017, it came to light that the Russian navy has commenced training of beluga whales, seals, and bottlenose dolphins for military purposes in polar waters.

Recently, Murmansk Sea Biology Research Institute in northern Russia researched for their navy to check if beluga whales can guard naval base entrances effectively, help deepwater divers, and if needed kill any outsider who enters their territory.

The role of seals and dolphins was to carry tools for divers and pick up torpedoes, mines, and other ammunition which has gone down to depths of up to 120 meters.

In 2016, the defense Ministry bought 5 bottle-nosed dolphins, aged between three and five, from Moscow’s Utrish Dolphinarium for a cost of £18,000. Seals and dolphins fared better, were less sensitive to cold, and were more professional compared to whales, the study revealed.
