Mystery skeleton trapped in Iceberg

Here’s a story from June that I let slip by me – just saw it today.

Marine scientists in Canada and abroad are puzzled by bizarre photographs that appear to show the skeleton of a large mammal jutting out of an iceberg that recently drifted past Newfoundland’s east coast. The six pictures show what looks like a brown rib cage and spinal column, slightly bent, sticking out of a crust of ice.

I’ve had a look around, and can’t find any followup on this – for instance, was the iceberg, which was photographed by a local resident, every located again?
