Was A Killer Whale Spotted Near Pass-A-Grille?
Things that we see in the water off the west coast of Florida: Dolphins – Yes, Stingrays – Yes, Sharks – Yes, Killer Whales – No, Really? FOX13 Meteorologist, Paul Dellegatto, posted a photo and video of what looks like a killer whale off the coast of Pass-A-Grille in St. Pete Beach. Paul Dellegatto wrote on his Twitter, “Marine biologist I chatted with tonight said that as far as she knows, no one has ever photographed a killer whale from our west coast.”
ORCA off Pass-a-Grille Friday! According to marine biologist Mithriel MacKay, in all likelihood, this is a killer whale. It's rare. How rare? They didn't have ANY images taken from west coast of Florida. This is first she knows of. Others were taken offshore.📷 Debbie Maiorano pic.twitter.com/vmN8mNrrl9— Paul Dellegatto⚡️FOX (@PaulFox13) May 24, 2021
