Freed Willies – Inukjuak Whales Safe

The twelve grampus whales stuck in the ice in Hudson Bay, near the Inukjuak Village in Quebec, seem to have been delivered from this stressful situation by Mother Nature.

According to hunters who managed to reach the area, the ice movement created a passage allowing the whales to return to sea on Thursday.

The whales’ situation was in most newspapers around the world due mostly to the spectacular images of these ones, fighting to breathe in a small hole not much bigger than a mini-van.

They were apparently too close to the shore, caused by a sudden coolness which created this situation that had been going on for a couple of days.

The inhabitants of Inukjuak Village, Quebec, mobilized to launch a rescue operation to win time for the whales that would otherwise have eventually perished if they hadn’t gotten free in time.

A sudden change in the wind direction allowed the ice to be pushed away from shore meaning that the whales were free to swim back to sea.
