A Whale Wearing Harness Found By Norwegian Fishermen Is Suspected To Be a Russian Military Spy

The beluga whale was discovered by fishermen off the island of Ingøya in Norway and It is believed that the whale escaped a Russian naval base in the region. Inside the harness, which has now been removed from the whale, was a Go-Pro camera with the words "Equipment of St. Petersburg". Marine experts believe the whale was trained by the Russian navy as part of a programme to use underwater mammals as a special ops force. The fisherman said the whale was very tame and seemed used to human beings: "We were going to put out nets when we saw a whale swimming between the boats," fisherman Joar Hesten told Norwegian broadcaster NRK. "It came over to us, and as it approached, we saw that it had some sort of harness on it."

Apparently, The Groovy Looking Fantasy Horses In "Frozen" Are Real

And they live in Norway. check it out. So now its not only Anna who can have a cool horse with racing stripes. and you don't even have to spray paint them on to pull it off. These horses are absolutely stunning. If I had to choose a breed, it would be this one or a miniature pony. Because why not. Now all I need is to wait for someone to genetically breed Pegasus, and I will finally be able to live out my childhood Disney fantasy.

There are plenty of other beautiful horses that are close contenders, for example the Akhal-Tekes Golden horses. And keep in mind there are also horse memes out there, because horses are funny too, not just a pretty and long face.
