Video: Watch as orcas feed on gray whale carcass in Monterey

Earth Touch news has featured video from the Monterey Bay Whale Watch that features what is thought to be the first footage of its kind of transient orcas feeding on the carcass of a gray whale. The whale watching boat first spotted the orcas on April 20th and then sent the drone up to get a better perspective of the rare feeding behavior. “Over 35 hours and [they were] still feeding as we left!” the team stated.

Also recorded in the video are two humpback whales that attempt to interfere with the feeding orcas, a behavior that has been documented and published in a paper.
