Inukjuak, Canada

Caption: Killer whales surface through a small hole in the ice near Inukjuak, in Northern Quebec. Mayor Peter Inukpuk urged the Canadian government Wednesday to send an icebreaker as soon as possible to crack open the ice and help the pod of about a dozen trapped orcas find open water.

Poor babies. They are such beautiful creatures, I hope they are able to save them, by getting them into open water. Thanks AP, for sharing with us, so we can see them :0) Karen

They got out on their own; this has been all over the news. Thankfully, by the time rescuers arrived with new ideas to save them the next day, the whales had escaped (there were 11 in the pod).
