Orcas have become synonymous with being cute and cuddly over the last several decades, thanks in large part to Sea World marketing them as gentle giants. Out in the open water it’s an entirely different story, which played out over the weekend in the water next to the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium in California.
A drone mounted camera captured the gruesome scene of five of the killer whales launching a precision attack on an unsuspecting Gray Whale and her helpless calf. Sadly, the calf was killed in the ambush, but this is mother nature, not Sea World. Watch this video and see why orcas are considered some of the most ruthless killers in the Ocean. When you gotta eat, you gotta eat.
