After 17 Days And 1,000 Miles, A Mother Orca's 'Tour Of Grief' Is Over
In this photo, taken Saturday and released by the Center for Whale Research, an orca known as J-35, foreground, swims with podmates near Friday Harbor, Alaska.

After carrying her calf's corpse for an unusually long time, a "remarkably frisky" Tahlequah, or J-35, as the orca's known, was seen Saturday chasing a school of salmon with fellow members of her pod.
