Gibraltar Orcas
« on: November 07, 2023, 08:26:31 PM »
Apparently they are extremely upset and are taking out their frustrations on the local human boating community.  Perhaps we should consider why the are angry and take their emphatic warnings seriously.  Just my opinion.

It’s climate change.  Orcas are mad at humans and who can blame them as we destroy the planet
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

They have a 5 point plan to take their revenge.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

They're upset, very upset.  I think you may be right that this is part of the reason.  This particular pod is teeing off regularly and vessels with humans are quite vulnerable to their tremendous power.

I gotta think at least some portion of an orca is edible.

The vitriol towards our tremendous marine mammals here is a condemnation of our entire society.  I believe the Orcas are warning us about something.

I agree.  They’re warning humans that we’re destroying our planet.  Unfortunately for them, our greed and lust for ignorance far outweighs any concern they have. 

Tough luck, dummies.  Our destruction of the planet will continue unabated

Maybe these particular Orcas are just pretty boys.

I've been blessed to be in the water and in close proximity to Killer Whale pods as well as Humpback Whales.  They are amazing animals with wicked intelligence.  I have tremendous respect for all marine mammals.  This sea otter that was criticized for flipping surfers was pregnant and just protecting her pup.  I'm still absolutely appalled at what the Norwegian government did to Freya.  Terrible.

They're taking out luxury yachts with relative ease.  I wonder if they're having a competition?
