A seal was finished off by a killer whale in shallow water and it was all caught on tape.
When a top level predator like a killer whale wants to eat a seal, pray that you’re not a seal. Here’s a look at the brutal reality of a hunter that has to kill to eat and survive.
By the look of it, the seal had already been attacked and couldn’t escape.

Even though the seal was bleeding profusely and obviously wounded it still didn’t attempt to get away by leaving the water. The orca in question didn’t look at all like it was worried that it would escape and in fact only casually swam in to finish it off.
It’s almost as if the seal knew the inevitable would happen and just… let it happen.
The guy that ran in at the end was probably just getting the closest look he could get and certainly wasn’t thinking about saving the animal. Feeling sorry for a wild seal killed by a wild orca is like getting mad at a woodchuck for eating your mom’s tulips.
But at least we can shoot the woodchuck.
