A pod of at least 10 killer whales was hunting near the coast of Scotland.
Images captured off the coast of the Shetland Islands (Scotland, United Kingdom) show the moment in which a terrified seal climbs on some rocks to avoid being caught by a herd of orcas, popularly known as killer whales.
Recorded by Haydn Thomason, a 27-year-old local resident, the video reveals how two cetaceans corner their potential victim . The incident took place in the vicinity of the port city of Lerwick last weekend.
In the clip you can see, sticking out of the water, the dorsal fins of the killer whales, which move in circles around the desirable prey. Skillfully, the seal manages to jump over some rocks at the last minute and waits until the predators move away.
When he is safe, he jumps into the water and escapes swimming, while a group of people follows the anguishing scene a few meters away.
Thomason told the local newspaper Daily Record that it was a pod of at least 10 killer whales that were hunting seals near the coast. “This was the first time I saw an orca hunt so close to me,” he said.
“It was absolutely amazing to see something so dramatic and intense in person. Fortunately, there was a happy ending for the seal, who managed to escape, as can be seen in the last scenes of the clip,” he added.
