#7 Grieving orca Tahlequah finally drops her dead calf after carrying it for 17 days

The endangered orca who has been clinging onto her dead calf for more than two weeks and swimming for 1,000 miles, has finally let go of her baby.

The 20-year-old mother, known as J35 or Tahlequah, broke the hearts of watchers across the globe who were touched by the story of the grieving whale. 

On Saturday she was spotted looking 'vigorous and healthy' following 17 days of swimming with her dead calf on her forehead in the Haro Strait off of the Washington coast.

'J35 frolicked past my window today with other J pod whales, and she looks vigorous and healthy,' Ken Balcomb, founding director of the Center for Whale Research, said to The Seattle Times.
