Luna, the orphaned orca, apparently killed.
Edited on Fri Mar-10-06 03:46 PM by satireV
GOLD RIVER, B.C. -- Luna, the dangerously friendly killer whale, appears to have been killed doing the same sorts of things that enraged some local residents, but endeared him to hundreds of others in B.C. and around the world.

Dr. John Ford, a scientist with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, said Friday it appears Luna died after getting sucked into the propeller of a tugboat.

1. That's a shame.
