Killer whales are pretty impressive creatures, aren’t they? These marine mammals are the largest representative of the dolphin family. They are also extremely intelligent and adaptable, and they can even communicate with each other to hunt more efficiently. Needless to say, they are not the friendliest of animals. Generally speaking, it’s better for people if they don’t get too close to them.
However, when people noticed a killer whale in desperate need of help, they decided to get closer and help the poor creature. The incident occurred off the coast of British Columbia. The killer whale got stuck on several rocks, trying to get some food. Fortunately for him, several people noticed him in time and all rushed to save him. But everyone knew that it would be quite a difficult rescue!
The people who ended up helping her were all volunteers who had found out there’s an orca in need of help from a Facebook post. These people mobilized quickly and jumped in their cars to arrive at the scene as soon as possible. Luckily, after nearly eight hours, they managed to free the orca. The marine mammal was not injured in any way as result of the incident.
