- Orcas have attacked and sunk three boats off the coast of Europe recently, and experts say the orcas are teaching others how to sink boats.
- In the latest incident, three orcas attacked a yacht on May 4 in the Strait of Gibraltar.
- “There were two smaller and one larger orca,” skipper Werner Schaufelberger said. “The little ones shook the rudder at the back while the big one repeatedly backed up and rammed the ship with full force from the side. The two little orcas observed the bigger one’s technique and, with a slight run-up, they too slammed into the boat.”
- Spanish coast guards rescued the crew but the boat sank as they were towing it into port.
