If the calf survives, he'll never see the open ocean again since there is no way now for humans to teach him survival skills.

The National Marine Fisheries Service will eventually decide where he will be placed.

I wish they had a sanctuary to send this wayward baby beluga...The thing that touched me the most is the fact that he has a feeding tube because I have one, also. It's where I get my nutrients and protiens. I can still eat by mouth if I want to, but the foood in this place is not the best! LOL I'll be praying for 'Johnny' like the rest of you. Thnx for your comments!!

You cannot currently send a star to BarbCat because you have done so within the last week.
