A beluga whale stranded in a Canadian river for several weeks hitched a ride home thanks to a team of rescuers. The whale became trapped in the Nepisiguit River in New Brunswick, Canada, likely in search of food, or after an especially high tide. The rescuers used a net to catch the whale, put it on a stretcher, and then drove it to a waiting plane. It was flown back to the sea and released, where it will hopefully rejoin its pod.
