    They did that to me once. Although I didn't know what was happening until I climbed up on a rock sort of like that and turned around to see the fins. I was exiting through a kelp bed, and a couple of seals just bumped past me and swam away ahead. They kept looking back over their shoulders. (Maybe they'll eat this doofus... let's book!)

    Here's one that couldn't get the dogs to jump in... so he took their whole boat!

    I agree.
    And I also noticed that the link had "cutestuff" in it.
    What's so cute about a dog endangered from becoming the Orca's next meal?
    Those giant killers are known to eat seals and dogs are no match.

    Yeah, and the dick on the beach there just recording it with his phone instead of doing anything.

    But I've seen the orcas just slowly following seals like that before without attacking them. Sometimes, it's said that they're herding them toward the main pack. But I think maybe they just like to fuck with them, like a cat playing with a mouse.
