Whale prison on Russian territory – video

As reported by media around the world, a prison has been discovered on Russian territory where more than 100 whales are being held in dramatic conditions. Videos and photographs leave no doubt that the animals are being held for some time and then transported in an unknown direction.

90 Arctic whales and 11 orcas have been counted in the “whale prison”, as the facility located in the Sea of Japan near the Russian town of Nakhodka near Vladivostok has been christened. According to speculation, the animals are destined for illegal trade with Chinese aquariums.

Local authorities investigating the case have reported that some of the whales have been held here since July. In the attached footage, a crane can be seen lifting the whale and then loading it into a transport tank.

Commercial whaling was banned worldwide in 1982 and trade in whales is illegal. The only exception is the capture of these animals for scientific research facilities.

According to The Thelegraph website, the value of one orca on the Chinese market, is valued at around $ 6 million!

The Russian police and prosecutors are currently investigating whether the whales were caught and kept in accordance with the law and under appropriate conditions. However, looking at the available video and photographic material, one may have doubts about this.

The population of orcas in the Kamchatka region has declined so dramatically that they were listed as an endangered species this year.
