SeaWorld: Orca has chunks torn from body as tank mates unleash attack

The Independent published this video item, entitled “SeaWorld: Orca has chunks torn from body as tank mates unleash attack” – below is their description.

Shocking footage captured at SeaWorld in San Diego shows killer whales appearing to attack each other in the water.

In the clip, which has been shared on social media by Peta, the two orcas thrash around before one swims away.

As it leaves the area, the other can be seen bleeding, with a chunk of its blubber ripped away.

“We all immediately saw blood soaking the water,” an eyewitness said, according to Peta.

“We would see bite marks and fresh wounds all over the side of the whale.”
