KILLER WHALE (ORCA) CHASES DOG...Diver Escapes onto Rocks - YouTube
Looks like the Orcas were just curious - if they had wanted to eat the dog they could of taken him he was swimming slowly and stood in the water for quite a while. I remember seeing a nature film when the Orcas took seals off the beach.
But still a very lucky Diver and Dog
Holy moly i wouldnt have risked my dog doing that.
Wow. The dog's name just has to be "lucky".
Glad he/she made it though....
I think if they'd wanted to take him they would have, he was totally within reach. Still, must have given both quite a shock! There are no reports of orcas behaving aggressively to humans in the wild, just in captivity.
Orcas are really fascinating animals. I've read that when teaching their young to hunt, they will try and dislodge seals from rocks by creating waves that wash them off, but if they are not hungry and just teaching, they will leave the seals alone, or have even been seen to 'help' them back on to the rocks.
Wow, how close to the beach were they?
Just imagine going for a little paddle there....you would be splashing about happily when suddenly the ground drops away and you are in killer whale infested waters!!:scared:
(brown, smelly waters I imagine!!).
