It’s so hard to be angry with them when they’re doing such a good job of picking their targets.
Killer whales have sunk yet another boat in southwestern Europe, marking the fourth such incident in the region in the last two years.
The latest attack saw a pod of orcas target a yacht in the Strait of Gibraltar for about 45 minutes, Polish cruise company Morskie Mile said in a Facebook post on 31 October.
The boat’s operator said the relentless attack focused on the yacht’s steering fin and caused extensive damage and leakage.
“Despite attempts to bring the yacht to the port by the captain, crew and rescuers from the SAR (Search and Rescue), port tugs and the Moroccan Navy, the unit sunk near the entrance to the port of Tanger Med,” the company said, while adding that the crew was “safe, unharmed, and sound”.
That’s how you do it. Hit privileged people in the pocketbook without actually killing or hurting them physically, and we’ll cheer you on. If only humans were smart enough to realize that!
