The Russian navy has reported that one of its vessels came under attack and was sunk during a September research mission in the Arctic Ocean. The vessel was a rubber landing craft. The attacker: an angry walrus. An official release from Russia’s Northern Fleet speculated that the female walrus was probably defending her nearby young. The walrus managed to sink the boat, but not before the Russian sailors were able to scramble to shore. The incident happened off the coast of Franz Josef Land.
