Luna, like a child lost in a supermarket
This is the True Story of Luna, a killer whale [orca] who got lost from his pod and somehow ended up in Nootka Sound, Gold River, British Columbia. Luna was only about four years old at that time.
He was wandering up and down the aisles in a supermarket like a child, when suddenly he turned around and his family was gone! Gone!
This short 5 minutes video “A Whale of a Documentary” is on my Home page.
Journalist Michael Parfit went to check out the news reports about Luna and instead of taking just a few weeks to write his story, he ended up staying for three years to make this movie/documentary! Michael fell in love with Luna!
Narrated by Ryan Reynolds!
Luna was very lonely and wanted to find some new friends to play with him.
So he swam up and down Nootka Sound looking for people who would play with him.
People in boats, ships, on the pier, even the lumber yard. Anywhere he could find people as there were no other killer whales in the area! He was all alone!
The people loved Luna! Especially the kids! He was so playful and absolutely charming…
Then the scientists said it was not good that Luna was so friendly with humans. The Fisheries Department got involved and they tried to catch Luna…
Watch this movie “The Whale” on Netflix to see what happened. This movie will change your life! I’ve watched it at least twice now!
