Three orcas apparently were landed by Korean fishermen in November. So far
only some photos from Flickr and some poorly translated news reports are
available so far, but one of the photos may allow some identification if
they had been photographed previously. The photo with a saddle patch and
eyepatch can be seen Tim Zimmermann's blog, which is the clearinghouse for
further information:

A commenter on the blog says that these photos come from a 2008 event:
