Escaping the executioner whale, the huge otter swam irately towards John’s pontoon with the orca in interest.
With seconds to save, the otter hopped up onto the transom of the vessel! The whale started revolving around John’s vessel, hesitant to surrender his prey.
When boaters in Alaska saw an otter being pursued by an orca they never envisioned they would get associated with the life and passing experience.
John Dornellas was on his pontoon in Halibut Cove, Alaska when he detected the otter around 200 yards away.
John uncovered to T&T Creative Media that “a round of feline and-mouse followed, with the otter bouncing go into the water trying to escape, just for the orca to pursue it back up again three or four times.
“Don didn’t move the pontoon in dread of harming both of the creatures. His fellow captain, Chantrelle Major filmed the encounter from her boat next to John’s.
She captures the whale continuing to approach John’s vessel in hopes of snagging the otter and the two can be heard conversing as to what to do in the video.
Eventually, the orca swam a distance away so John started up his boat and headed out. The otter eventually jumped off his boat when they were safely away from the orca.
