Mr Wiig said "people in Norway's military have shown great interest" in the harness.
The Russian military is reportedly renewing its Cold War-era training of marine mammals, considering such animals useful tools in defending naval bases, assisting military divers and even attacking intruders, The Guardian explained.
Russia's Northern Fleet is stationed in Murmansk on the Kola Peninsula on the coast of the Barents Sea in the far northwest of Russian Federation. Inside the harness, which has now been removed from the whale, were the words "Equipment of St. Petersburg".
Said Audun Rikardsen, professor at the department of arctic and marine biology at the Arctic University of Norway: "We know that in Russian Federation they have had domestic whales in captivity and also that some of these have apparently been released. Then they often seek out boats", he added.
Russian Federation does not have a history of using whales for military purposes but the Soviet Union had a full-fledged training program for dolphins.

But further research has since expanded to include beluga whales, seals and more dolphins, according to a 2017 report by the Russian defense ministry-owned TV Zvezda broadcaster.
That, Norwegian joint force commander Lt. Gen. Rune Jakobsen told Martin, is "not something you should do to your neighbor".

If what the Norwegian fishermen found is evidence of a current program by Russia's military, the Norwegians and their North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners might need to start looking for much smaller weapons of war, too - weapons with flippers.
