In 2009, Kelly Nash and his sons Kyle and Jasen obtained footage of a group of unknown animals that were pursued by a pod of beluga whales in Nushagak Bay, Alaska.

Well, we at the BCSCC were the first to say it and now Bryan Sykes confirms what we brought to you in the BCSCC Quarterly a couple of years ago.
