A videographer, shooting a promotional film for whale watching company Eagle Wing Tours, captured some dramatic footage of a killer whale kicking a harbor seal 80 feet into the air off the coast of British Columbia.
The attack was filmed by Mike Walker, the owner of Victoria-based Roll.Focus. Productions. The Orca was spotted aggressively chasing the seal before using its tail to flip the seal out of the water.
“We do a ton of whale watching, but this is fairly rare,” Walker told AmeriPublications.
The caption of the video notes that this pod of whales is known as the T69s and that T69C, the lone male in the group, was the one to hurl the seal.
