MONTREAL — A wayward humpback whale has strayed from her usual habitat and ended up in the Montreal area on Saturday — a first according to marine mammal experts. The whale was spotted underneath the Jacques Cartier Bridge, near the city’s La Ronde amusement park, early in the afternoon. Marie-Eve Muller, a spokeswoman for the Quebec Marine Mammal Emergency Response Network, said it’s unclear what led the whale to wander so far astray or how long it might stick around Montreal before turning around.
