    Killer whale possibly killed by U.S. military explosion
    Military tests off Washington killed at least one orca, scientist suspects

    A necropsy found the marine mammal died from highly unusual injuries.
    'Chances are some other whales got killed, too,'
    —Marine scientist Ken Balcomb

    "The entire body showed evidence of massive blunt trauma, some sort of pressure wave that was very blunt in nature not the pointed bow of a ship or anything," said Ken Balcomb, senior scientist at the Center for Whale Research at Friday Harbour, Wash., about 15 kilometres east of Victoria.
    Balcomb suspects the animal was killed by an explosive device, one of 96 the U.S. Navy deployed in the area in 2011.

    Author: U.S. Navy destroying dolphins & whales, attacking Earth’s life frequency

    In an exclusive ExopoliticsTV interview with Alfred Lambremont Webre, Patricia Cori, author of Before We Leave You: Messages from the Great Whales and the Dolphin Beings, has stated that the 5-year sonar testing program announced by the U.S. Navy is having a destructive effect far beyond what the conventional analysis and media are reporting. The environmental impacts of the U.S. Navy sonar-testing program include the estimated annihilation of 13 million sea mammals, including cetaceans such as dolphins and whales.
