Video: Killer Whale Launches Sea Lion into Air

A group of anglers in Ketchikan, Alaska, were witness to an astounding spectacle of predator-on-prey action.

And they got it on video.

The charter boat from Anglers Adventures encountered this sea lion on Friday while fishing. Nearby orcas seemed to have driven the sea lion to seek refuge near the boat, and it desperately swims back and forth underneath the craft. The anglers film the frantic pinniped for a few minutes before moving on. The videographer continues filming, however, as the sea lion tried to follow.

Unfortunately for the sea lion, that’s when the killer whale catches up.
