Beluga whale seen playing fetch with sailors, netizens all hearts

A video of the encounter was posted on Facebook by Alon Kowen saying: "Beluga Whale celebrating the Springboks victory somewhere close to the South Pole!" The couple who claims to be rugby fanatics were sailing on a yacht when they spotted the whale swimming next to them. The whale chases the ball, before returning it to the men on the boat. Still, that didn't stop the South African crew of a Gemini Craft boat near the Arctic Circle tossing the oval around with a nearby beluga whale. Or Michael Cheika should have added to the Wallabies squad for the World Cup.

New Zealand Herald reports that the video was taken by crew members aboard the Gemini Craft, which is now at sea in the Arctic Pole.

The whale retrieved the ball a couple of times. It's unclear if Kowen was the one who actually captured the footage, though, as belugas are far more common in the North than the South, although they are known to travel South in winter and the climate crisis is altering traditional weather and migration patterns. "That is so great!", said a user on Twitter.

In fact, ten years ago, a captive beluga whale once rescued a distressed participant of a free diving competition by pushing her to the surface.

They also like to play with items they find in the sea, including wood, dead fish and the bubbles they create underwater.
