  1. UPDATE: Aug. 11, 9 p.m.

    After I posted this blog entry this evening, I received this note from Ken Balcomb:

    Hello all,
    J35 frolicked past my window today with other J pod whales, and she looks vigorous and healthy. The ordeal of her carrying a dead calf for at least seventeen days and 1,000 miles is now over, thank goodness. She probably has lost two others since her son was born in 2010, and the loss of her most recent may have been emotionally hard on her.

  2. Reminds me of an NPR segment a week or so ago reporting on 2 servicemen who are experiencing symptoms of TBI from using shoulder- mounted rocket launchers in practice. They had never been in combat and military as so far denied that not ever being hit by anything (only experiencing close range sound and blast wave) could cause brain injury. But the men are pretty convinced this is the cause of their symptoms.

  3. Thank you to all who are try to save this beloved family members of the Southern resident orcas, I’m from Missouri and have made calls and an writing letters to breach the dams and give the magnificent mammals a fighting chance!

  4. For the record, it would be interesting to know the body mass and dimension differences between L-112 and J-35’s calf.

    We should also continue seeking the full release of Canadian necropsy/forensic data on J-34 which could help us begin to differentiate between blunt force trauma caused by sound waves versus collisions (e.g. with a speeding boat).
