Cops are likely to speak at a press conference planned for Friday afternoon by the aquarium employees.
Whale Tiqa was born on June 10, 2008. According to the aquarium employees, Tiqa died early Friday morning at roughly around 6:00 a.m. PT.
The aquarium staff said: “Tiqa has been transferred to the Ministry of Agriculture Animal Health Care Centre where a full necropsy is being performed by aquarium veterinarian Dr. Martin Haulena and Ministry of Agriculture veterinary pathologist Dr. Stephen Raverty. Vancouver Aquarium staff — particularly its animal care team — and volunteers are deeply saddened by this loss.”
Whale Tiqa is reportedly the fourth young beluga to expire at the Stanley Park facility. Three of them died before they turned 3.
