An image of what appeared to be a killer whale swimming Schoodic Point in Winter Harbor, Maine has been busted as a Photoshop job.


The photo went viral locally in Maine and showed what looked like a killer whale, also known as an orca, was actually an image of an orca in the San Juan Islands who had been carrying her dead calf around with her ever since it died shortly after birth four days earlier.

The fake image shrunk the killer whale in San Juan photo down and inserted it into the fake, as pointed out by someone in Facebook comments. That Facebook post has since been taken down, but we've linked to one currently on Reddit.


So if you see this image in your feed, now you know someone was trying to pull a fast one.
