Video: Humpback Whales Distressed by Orca Hunt

A BBC/National Geographic film crew captured a video of a group of humpback whales intervening in an orca attack off the coast of California.

A mother gray whale and her young one were migrating across the Monterey Bay when they were attacked by a group of orcas. Orcas prey on migrating gray whales by working in a group to separate a mother and her calf.

Humpback whales were feeding in the Monterey Bay area at the time and intervened in the hunt. Exhibiting their distress, the humpbacks trumpeted and slapped the water with their fins, continuing even after the mother gray whale had fled the area.
