Killer whale possibly killed by U.S. military explosion

Military tests off Washington killed at least one orca, scientist suspects
CBC News
Posted: Mar 22, 2012
A necropsy found the marine mammal died from highly unusual injuries.

'Chances are some other whales got killed, too,'—Marine scientist Ken Balcomb

"The entire body showed evidence of massive blunt trauma, some sort of pressure wave that was very blunt in nature not the pointed bow of a ship or anything," said Ken Balcomb, senior scientist at the Center for Whale Research at Friday Harbour, Wash., about 15 kilometres east of Victoria.

Balcomb suspects the animal was killed by an explosive device, one of 96 the U.S. Navy deployed in the area in 2011.

Oooooook lol, now this is sad, but interesting to see in the news. Animal awareness is important, but then again I guess someone didn't do there job.

Why are you hiding the truth from me when I can see it in plain sight? The only thing this proves is how blind you really are.

it's not quite that simple ... why is the navy exploding bombs in this area anyway? the news reports it but leaves it to tail off into nothing leaving the important question unanswered and unnoticed by most people ... people will take away two things for the most part: who cares about a killer whale or we should try harder to preserve natural species ... but what we should ask is why are they exploding bombs there? underwater i assume ... and what effect is it having on other wildlife in the area, namely, wildlife we might be consuming as food ...

take care :)

Author: U.S. Navy destroying dolphins & whales, attacking Earth’s life frequency

Alfred Lambremont Webre
Seattle Exopolitics Examiner

In an exclusive ExopoliticsTV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, Patricia Cori, author of Before We Leave You: Messages from the Great Whales and the Dolphin Beings, has stated that the 5-year sonar testing program announced by the U.S. Navy is having a destructive effect far beyond what the conventional analysis and media are reporting. The environmental impacts of the U.S. Navy sonar-testing program include the estimated annihilation of 13 million sea mammals, including cetaceans such as dolphins and whales.
