Whale of a ban

The recent deaths of two beluga whales at Vancouver Aquarium has led international animal rights organizations to call on the Vancouver Park Board to ban imports of whales or dolphins to the aquarium.

A number of groups, including PETA, sent a letter that also asks for a permanent ban on keeping the mammals in captivity in Vancouver.

It's still unclear what caused the recent whale deaths.

Both Aurora and her her 21-year-old calf died after exhibiting the same mysterious symptoms.
