Nature fights back !!

I read an article yesterday in the google news headlines that
Sailing boats sailing along the spanish coast from Gibraltar north
to Portugal have been attacked and damaged, and even disabled
by a pod of orca killer whales??
The orcas seem to be organising co-ordinated attacks on sailing
vessels of more than 40ft in length?Where they circle the boat and
take turns at bumping violently into the hulls, concentrating on the
rudders, which they damage and even break compleatly !!
Causing two of the boats to abandon their voyage and seek
assistance to get repairs in port?
Experts have no explanation for this behaviour??
I wonder if it could be revenge??

Donkeyman! 👍😇👍

Maybe we should introduce them to the boatloads of immigrants heading here!

Good idea & we do have Orca's in our waters, but they are getting scarcer.
