Video: Trapped Killer Whales Escape from Ice

A pod of twelve killer whales was trapped for two days under ice off the coast of Canada in the Hudson Bay. They were eventually able to escape, but it remains unknown whether they made it out to the open ocean.

The whales were seen taking turns breathing via a small truck-sized hole in the ice. They were also seen “spy hopping,” or poking their heads out in an attempt to see other holes in the ice that might lead to the open sea.

Experts believe the pod was originally drawn to the bay to feed during warmer weather and that they were trapped when temperatures dropped.

Take a look at the video footage.
