This beautiful country is also the home of more than 5 million people that live in harmony in one of the richest countries of the world.

About A Spy
It was said that the creature was trained to be a spy and it was in the open waters near Norway to gather information about the Norwegian fleet in case of a possible attack.
There was a lot of controversy around this subject and no one wanted to confirm if it was actually true. Did someone want to invade Norway and to conquer its riches? Was this a strategic move or was it fake news?

It was a discussion amongst people on the internet that the creature came from Russia to spy on the NATO fleet. Of course Russia and NATO are now on high alert after the Ukrainian dispute, but the world powers don’t want to back down and have to show their muscles.
If either it’s in a form of a tank or taking the shape of a sea creature, the force is definitely there and the world has to hear about it. So what did Ina knew?

She Knew About A Place
Information about the Russian spy was all over the internet and Ina had to see for herself. She new that the creature was in the northern waters so she went to the docks in Hammerfest to see if she can spot it with her own eyes.
Some of her friends joined her to witness the creature and to tell its tales to the locals and all their friends and families. Were they afraid?

When you seek out a thrill it’s best to do it with your friends. The amount of laughs you will have will be endless and the story behind it will stay with you forever. But Ina was confident that the creature will cross their path.
It’s a possibility that most of them were afraid of the rumors surrounding the creature and if indeed it was a spy, the creature would probably be supervised by Russian KGB agents.

Out on the docks, on a sunny afternoon, the gang was looking out in the distance to see if they can lay their eyes on the majestic sea creature that people were talking about. It seems that indeed they didn’t have to wait long.
The moment they got there, something was lurking in the water in front of them. They couldn’t tell if it was the creature or some type of fish, but they weren’t about to run away scared.

It wasn’t the legendary Loch Ness Monster and it wasn’t something that they should be scared of. The creature moved closer to them and that’s when Ina and the gang could see it. It had smooth skin and a rounded head, and it seemed very familiar.
From the distance it could pass as a Loch Ness Monster but the group wasn’t concerned about that. They wanted to take a selfie with it no matter what so they called the creature close.

A rounded face, a fin on its back and moving with grace through water, the creature had to be a dolphin that lost its ways in the sea. But what was it doing there?
Since no dolphins were sighted, they were considering the possibility that the dolphin was trained to hurt them and at any point, a Russian transmitter could turn on and set the dolphin to kill mode. They had to do a bit of research.

It Was A Whale
The information pointed to the fact that dolphins are not living in the area and that creature that Ina and her friends saw was in fact a beluga whale. It is also known as the white whale and it is the only sea creature that can adapt to the Artic life.
The whale came very close to the group and watched them as they were watching her back. It seemed rather confusing but in the end, they had to take a photo.

Was The Story About It True?
There was no proof of where the whale came from and if it was a Russian spy. However, the whale itself feeds on worms and small fishes so it doesn’t pose a real threat to human lives. It was however true that it was lurking the Norwegian seas and it was trying to make itself know.
But what lead to the story of why this beluga whale was a spy for the Russian army?

People Found A Harness
A few months ago people saw the whale and noticed that it had a harness around its neck. The whale was first spotted in Ingoya, just 258 miles from the Russian Fleet that was based in Murmansk.
It is a mystery why it swam for 258 miles to the Norway boarders just to say hello to people. The harness may have had a tracker or a transmitter, and the Russian government was out to gather data about the Norwegian territories.

Eligibly The Whale Was A Russian Spy
The signs pointed it towards the Russian fleet and this made the whale a spy. It wasn’t long until people started to fear it and to want it deported back to Russia, but the whale seemed comfortable in the Norwegian waters.
It may have been the people that drove her there or the whale was indeed on a mission, but it didn’t show any signs of being a spy. Was it 007 out to do some damage?

Out For No Good?
The whale was always greeting people and doing tricks for them. Before Ina found her, she heard that the whale was playing fetch and smiling for people with hopes of getting a snack.
I wonder if at the Russian base she was thought to do tricks while getting rewarded with fish, while when she didn’t perform the animal would stay unfed. A concerning thought to have in mind, and maybe that’s what led her to Norway.

Wherever she went people were playing with her and petting her, so that’s why Ina was searching to find this wonderful animal and to post a photo of her.

The Whale Was Indeed Trained
It seems that the Russians did a great job in training the whale but they tried their best to cover their tracks. Whenever someone pointed out that the whale belonged to them they decisively denied it.
As per their words stated above, it is obvious that when you want to spy on a country you will leave your GPS coordinates and a phone number on the harness just so that the war machine gets brought back to the rightful owner.

The whale may have escaped the Russian habitat and came to the Norwegian seas to find people or a flock of beluga whales to join. Since it was all by itself, she had to count on humans for food and that’s why it was doing the tricks that the Russian Navy thought her.
It shocking that it got to this but at least she was better treated in Norway than she was in Russia.

Knowing that whales and dolphins can be trained to spy on people and countries, raises awareness of what the future may look like. Human armies may sit in the comfort of their own chairs, while robot armies and trained animals do the fighting for them.
The harness that the whale had was supposedly holding a Go Pro and other devices attached to it. So what happens if all this technology is transported to an enemy country?

New Types Of War
A marine animal can carry a lot of equipment that is untracked and undetected by the enemy forces. A Go Pro camera and a satellite transmitter is what a country needs to spy on its enemies. If the whale carried that on a harness it’s hard to consider the outcome.
We have to think about the possibilities and of what may come out of this technology. But what happened to the girl’s phone?

The phone was indeed water resistant but it wasn’t made for the depths of the ocean. The phone instantly got damaged either from the cold or for the pressure so it was hard to turn it back on again.
The whale was good at recovering but it wasn’t good at fixing the device so Ina had to take her phone back for repairs. Hopefully the phone wasn’t hacked during this time and photos of her didn’t pop-up randomly on the internet.
