Hey, they aren’t called “killer whales” for nothing. If you’re a 90s kid or older, then you probably remember the Michael Jackson-infused film phenomenon known as Free Willy. It was also the birth of what has become the modern movement to prevent the capture of whales so they can be stuck in aquariums for our enjoyment. While Willy was a friendly whale, the majority of these social creatures inhabit the oceans are constantly on the prowl for food.

Paddle boards and surf boards look like seals to the animals that lurk below the surface. This particular wild orca decided to investigate and see if the paddle boarder was just a really slow and weird-looking seal that it could eat. Needless to say, it was a very tense moment!
