Video: Beluga Whale Wanders Into the River Thames

To the amazement of wildlife experts and onlookers in a British town, a  beluga whale has been spotted in the famed River Thames. The creature  was initially noticed late in the morning on Tuesday by an ecologist who  posted footage of the out-of-place animal on Twitter. Dave Andrews marveled "can't believe I'm writing this, no joke – beluga in the Thames" and  went on explain that the creature was "feeding around the barges" with  seemingly no plans to leave the area.

As to how the beluga whale wound up nearly 1,000 miles away from its  native habitat, marine biologists are uncertain, but suspect that it  somehow got disoriented and wound up swimming into the river. They also  posited that the creature could be sick, although it seemed to be  behaving normally and did not appear to be in distress. "We are not  particularly concerned about its welfare apart from the fact that it  really shouldn’t be there," a marine life rescue worker explained to a  British newspaper.
