Orca whales are fascinating creatures, aren’t they? These are the largest members of the dolphin family. They are also incredibly intelligent and flexible, and they can interact with one another to hunt more efficiently.
It goes without saying that they are not the friendliest of animals. In general, it is preferable for humans if they do not approach them too closely. However, when they observed an orca in severe need of assistance, the people in the video below decided to approach the poor creature and assist it.
The incident occurred off the coast of British Columbia. While attempting to get food, the orca became stranded on a series of rocks. Fortunately for him, a few people discovered him just in time and rushed to save him. But everyone knew it was going to be a difficult rescue!
The people who ended up assisting her were all volunteers who learned about an orca in need of assistance from a Facebook post. These folks instantly rallied and jumped in their cars to get to the situation as soon as possible.
Fortunately, they were able to free the orca after nearly eight hours. The incident had no negative consequences for the sea creature. Watch the video below to discover more about this spectacular rescue mission!
