Orca whales are some pretty impressive creatures, right? These sea mammals are the largest member of the dolphin family. They are also extremely intelligent and adaptable, and they can even communicate with each another in order to hunt more effectively. It’s needless to say that they are not exactly the friendliest of animals. Generally speaking, it’s best for humans if they don’t get too close to them.
However, when they spotted an orca in desperate need of help, the people in the video below decided to get close and help the poor creature. The incident occurred off the coast of British Columbia. The orca got stranded on a series of rocks while he was trying to get some food. Fortunately for him, a few people learned about him just in time and they all rushed to save him. But everyone knew it’s going to be a pretty tough rescue!
The people who ended up helping her were all volunteers who had found out there’s an orca in need of help from a Facebook post. These people mobilized quickly and jumped in their cars to arrive at the scene as soon as possible. Luckily, after nearly eight hours, they managed to free the orca. The marine mammal was not injured in any way as result of the incident.
