Luna died--a whale who liked to play with
people too much for his own good. (The news article is graphic in its description, so don't read it if you are sqeamish.)

Luna killed in tug mishap

By ROBERT McCLURE
P-I REPORTER

In the end, the wayward orca Luna died as he had lived and become well-known alone. And lonely.

The young killer whale that somehow got separated from his whale family in the back bays of Vancouver Island died in a grisly collision with a tugboats propeller this morning.

The death of a whale that attracted thousands of tourists some from overseas sparked anew arguments over whether Canadian officials and native leaders mishandled the situation.

Many of us in the Puget Sound area followed the story of Luna. I am very sad that it ended in such a horrible way.
