NIAGARA FALLS, Ont.—Marineland Canada says it's mourning the passing of a “beloved” beluga whale at its facility in Niagara Falls, Ont.

Marineland issued a statement this morning saying the whale named “Gia” died suddenly.

Preliminary results of a necropsy indicate the cause of death was a twisted small intestine that resulted in a fatal blockage.

Resident tries to get rid of wasp's nest, burns house

THUNDER BAY, Ont.—Officials in Thunder Bay, Ont., say a local resident lit his house on fire in an ill-advised effort to get rid of a wasp's nest.

Fire chief John Hay says the resident opted to tackle the nest, which was on the ground near their home, by pouring gasoline on it on Monday.

He says the fire quickly spread from the nest and wound up damaging the resident's home.
