I swear this is like a subplot from a Bond movie or something.
A beluga whale showed up near Norway with a Russian-made camera harness (but no camera) and has Norwegian officials speculating about Russian military spying cetaceans.
Apparently it's not that improbable, since there's a history of the Russian (and previously Soviet) military training dolphins???
The headlines keep getting better:
"Alleged Russian spy whale is refusing to leave and is seeking attention, authorities say"
