Spectacular Orca attack on elephant seal

Spectacular and rare Orca attack on young adult elephant seal in Punta Norte Valdes Peninsula. Orcas can only really attempt to capture a young sea lion when the tide is high. When a calm wave breaks along the edge of the different sea-lion colonies and the young innocent offspring are found distracted, playing in the foam; this is the orcas moment for action. When the tide recedes, the sea-lion colonies are left high and dry, far from where the water’s edge meets the cobble-stone beach and far from the possibility of witnessing an attack.
