    A beluga whale on loan to SeaWorld Orlando from the Vancouver Aquarium died on Thursday the Park has announced.

    Nanuq, estimated to be 31 or 32 years old, was being treated for an infection associated with a fractured jaw, which he suffered during "an interaction between two animals that were part of a compatible social group."

    A post-mortem examination has been scheduled, but the results are not expected for six to eight weeks.
