A dozen of killer whales were found trapped under a vast stretch of sea ice at Inukjuak in Quebec’s Far North in the second week of January 2013. The killer whales were gathered around a single hole of size bigger than that of a pickup-truck to find some oxygen to breath.

The residents of Quebec demanded support from the Canadian Government to provide an icebreaker so that they can crack open the ice and help the whales in finding the Open Water. The trapped whales were spotted by a hunter in the hole on the eastern shore of the Hudson Bay on 8 January 2013.
