After the publication in the media of a video about how a trainer beats two beluga whales in the Primorsky Aquarium, the prosecutor's office became interested in the incident. Officials of the department will check the implementation of the law on the treatment of animals.

According to the press service of the Primorye Prosecutor's Office, in addition to compliance with the law, law enforcement officers will assess the actions of officials who are responsible for keeping beluga whales. Response measures will be taken if justified.

As the head of the public relations department of the Primorsky Aquarium Elena Poddubnaya told EastRussia, the internal proceedings began... However, video footage is taken out of context and the animals are not damaged. She noted that now the animals are rutting, they can fight with each other, and the trainer is doing everything to distract the belugas from each other. In the video, she says, he jumps on the animal.
