Biggs/transient orca T30 ramming into a harbour porpoise in the Gulf of Georgia, September 6th 2013.

She did this two other times, it was incredible to witness. We just so happened to have a film crew onboard this particular trip, and they promised me that they would email me the footage once they had it all edited and such. I’ll be sure to post it here once they do send it along. Its hard to show with still photographs what the sheer power of this impact looks like … that porpoise flew 20+ feet in the air.
