JAMESTOWN, R.I. (AP) - A Connecticut aquarium is working with other authorities to check on the health of three beluga whales spotted off the coast of Rhode Island.

Officials from Mystic Aquarium and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration fisheries are working with local authorities to find the whales.

The team is searching Narragansett Bay to determine if they need to help the whales.

The aquarium’s lead veterinarian Dr. Allison Tuttle said in a statement only video footage posted on Facebook is available for now, but the whales seem to be behaving normally.
