With her baby calf gone, waters receding and a shortage of food, some boater harassment, I fear for the wellbeing of this beautiful creature.
Hopefully, she will decide to swim out to the ocean soon. She is definitely a gentle giant, never ever bothering the boats who come near her with
loud motors and complete disregard for the Marine Mammal Protection Act requiring 100 yards distance which, if enforced, carries a fine and jail time.
We are all hoping that this wayward mammal will leave the Klamath River soon and head for the open ocean where she will find food and salt water
that she needs to survive.
