The Good in People Makes the hairs stand up on my arms and neck sometimes… 

On January 10th A pod of eleven killer whales, a family of 2 adults and 9 juveniles  were discovered trapped in the ice of the Hudson bay off the coast of the small inuit village of inukjuak. Confined for two days in the small breathing hole that was shrinking by the day, the whales began to panic as they tried unsuccessfully to find another breathing hole and their way to sea.

While an icebreaker ship would typically be brought in to free the orcas, the closest crew was thirty six hours away, so the villagers decided to cut a half mile of holes for the killer whales to travel through to get them to open water.
