Killer Whale Attack: Orca Beaches Itself To Ambush Seals

December 2, 2019


COMM: Out of the water, these seals should have every right to feel safe. But here off
the coast of Argentina, the beach still holds danger. COMM: These are the unique orcas of the Peninsula Valdes, who have learned to catch seals by
beaching themselves. COMM: With a powerful burst of speed the six ton mammals rush onto the shore to grab their
prey, before sliding back into the water along the smooth stones. COMM: Most of the victims are newborn pups, unaware of the danger which lurks beyond the
shore. COMM: Sometimes they’ll be dragged out to sea, so juvenile orcas can practice hunting
live prey. COMM: And while it may be distressing to watch, this is just another example of the harsh
reality of nature.

    Killer Whale Attack: Orca Beaches Itself To Ambush Seals

    OUT of the water, most seals would have every right to feel out of harms way. But off the coast of Argentina, the local killer whales have made even shore a dangerous place to be – by learning to safely beach themselves. With a powerful burst of speed the six-tonne mammals are able to rush onto the shore to ambush seal pups before sliding back into the water on the smooth stones. Amazingly, this behaviour is not thought to be the result of instinct and has instead been taught down the generations – with just a handful of whales using the technique each season. These images were captured by wildlife filmmaker Gil Arbel, 43, at Peninsula Valdes during the seal breeding season, which lasts from January to April.

    killer whales are smart! they will hunt in packs to kill targets in specific ways. for example they have been recorded into forcing penguins onto patches of iceberg and as the penguins assume its safe, they soon realize its not when 2 of the whale will swim in force towards the iceberg and quickly under causing a wave to tilt the patch of ice and push the penguins off into the mouth of 1 or 2 other whales on the other side waiting to feed.

    What if a fox or raccoon infected a seal with rabies? Then an orca ate the affected seal? Will the world have to deal with a rabid whale? (After all, all mammals can theoretically get rabies…and whales are mammals, right?)

    Besides, what would a rabid whale even be like?

    Now don't go on wishing orcas a hellish death after this. There were recorded seal attacks on killing humans but there was never an attack by a wild orca
    Also seals for orcas are what KFC chicken is for us.

    The term "Killer Whales" is so misleading. First of all, they are not whales, they are dolphins. The are largest of the dolphin family. Secondly, "killer" is so many times misunderstood. They are the apex predators of the sea (yes, more than sharks), yet there is no incident of an Orca attacking a human. Ever.
    This should not be seen as cruel. but rather a learned, stealth method of feeding.

    La Jolla Cove has a problem with too many sea lions eating all the fish in the protected marine reserve… And yet, Shamoo the Killer Whale is sitting caged up at nearby Sea World, gobbling up 150 lbs of local fish per day – fish that the locals could eat. What a great thing… nature can solve the problem that man can't after years and years of committee meetings going around and around and ending up nowhere. Bring Shamoo to the La Jolla protected reserve. Isn't he protected too.?
