The plaintive cries of a young killer whale that had become trapped in a remote Canadian bay have ceased, now that the cetacean has been freed and apparently is with other killer whales.

And for that marine mammal experts at the Vancouver Aquarium and Department of Fisheries and Oceans have reason to celebrate.

Glad the baby got away safely. Will other packs accept him into their family?

Pod, not pack. Killer whale pods have a very closed social structure based on family. Reintegrations have been done with the young or injured ones original pod (members ID'ed by markings and fluke pattern), but with a "foreign" pod it's very questionable.
