Canadian Army Investigating Mysterious Noise Coming From Sea Floor
The Canadian army has carried out an investigation into a mysterious beeping noise coming from the depths of the Arctic Sea after nearby hunters expressed concerns over the dearth of game in an otherwise plentiful hunting space.
Paul Quassa, of the Nunavut legislative assembly, said: "That's one of the major hunting areas in the summer and winter because it's a polynya. And this time around, this summer, there were hardly any. And this became a suspicious thing."
Others reported to a radio station about the noise heard in the Firy and Hecla Strait. People punted that an iron mining company could be performing sonar surveys, but the Baffinland Iron Mines Corporation confirmed to CBC News it had zero equipment in the arctic.
Others said Greenpeace may have staged the sound to scare away the wildlife. Their spokesman Farrah Khan denied any such involvement.

Quassa added: "We've heard in the past of groups like Greenpeace putting in some kinds of sonars in the seabed to get the sea mammals out of the way so Inuit won't be able to hunt them.
"[But] nobody has ever seen any type of ship or anything going through that area and putting something down."
Fuck knows what it is.
