Is This Whale a Russian Spy?

Playing Whale Found Swimming With Harness May Have Escaped Russian Military Facility

Is this beluga whale a Russian spy?

The animal was spotted swimming off the coast of Norway by a bunch of fisherman, who said it caught their eyes because it seemed to be tied up in something, according to APTN.

But when they got a closer look, they discovered a harness clipped tightly to its body that read "Equipment St. Petersburg."

Reports say the Russian military has been known to train sea mammals. 

Officials believe the whale may have escaped from a Russian military facility.
