A YouTube user caught a dramatic escape on video.
In the video, posted below (WARNING: some users may find language used in the video offensive) a small seal is seen scrambling up onto the rear deck of a boat as orcas swim nearby.
YouTube user “kirk fraser” writes: “I was out with my parents and a family friends when we were looking for whales and a pod of 12 trainsient killer whales where chasing the seal. It ripped towards the boat in a desperate escape and scrambled on the deck. It fell of three times in panic and finally stayed on untill the whales gave up after about 30-45 minutes. Most intense epic experience ever. Love you Nature. What a lucky seal filmed on my boat.”
CBS Los Angeles reports the scene was filmed in British Columbia.
Seals are. Interesting, scientists in Alaska recently from attacking orcas.
