Watch this killer whale punt an unlucky seal into the sky
Someone’s in a mood.
Here at Daily Dot, we believe in animal rights. So when we found a video of a killer whale slapping a small seal clear out of the ocean, we had mixed feelings: How can we be against violence towards animals when animal-on-animal violence is so prevalent in the animal kingdom? HOW, SWAY?
Well, easily—wild animals injuring other wild animals is just the cruel circle of life you learned about in The The Lion King. So rather than feeling guilty for that little seal girl living in the real world, let’s embrace the greatest physics equation the internet has ever encountered.
If an Orca (O) hits a Seal (S) with (F) force, what veritcal distance (D) does Seal (S) travel? About 80 feet. Seal is probably dead, but maybe not?
The footage of this painful punt was captured around Victoria, British Columbia. Ideally, next time it’s a poacher that orca is smacking rather than a innocent seal who decided to annoy the wrong giant mammal.
