Killer Whale Luna

I didn't know this story, 've seen only the picture.
This is the photo from 2001. Killer whale Luna has lost his realtives (pod) in July of 2001, showed up in Nootka Sound, off Vancouver Island and remained to live in this bay interacting with people and this dog too.

The newspapers said, he became the main tourist attraction, but ... tourists came there to abuse it too (poked and prodded, poured beer down his blowhole).

The scientists decided to reunite Luna with his pod. It could to be good. Read this:
Meanwhile, the Mowachaht-Muchalaht First Nations people, a native Canadian tribe, raised concerns about moving Luna, whom they call Tsuux-iit. Their late chief had said he would return in the form of a whale. Shortly after his death, Luna appeared. (Source)

I looked for one video about a very good trained dog that I saw once time ago and found this one about Luna. And found older sources about it.

It would be interesting to know something about the end of this story.
