Orcas eat the biggest Great White Sharks for breakfast, literally, check utube. Whales too. Great Whites just attack as an individual. Orcas attack as a co ordinated team and can be a much bigger threat.
So I have been reading the comments on the Orca attack utube videos. Such as...
"There are no recorded examples of Orcas attacking human beings in the wild".
Naturally, there will never be a case anyway, because no one gets away, and like the Mafia, Orcas do not snitch, regarded as bad form.
Really. Orcas learn from each other and this includes new behaviour. So lets say your a member of a very hungry pod and some frail 20 foot something sail boat comes along with people on board. First the rudder is snapped off, then the boat is going nowhere. Next bash a hole in the boat and then it sinks. People come out and lunch is served. Keeps the pod going until some proper fish come along. This trick is eventually learned by other pods and soon they are all at it. With bigger boats the sinking part is not so easy and from there you hear the news and the reports of odd behaviour. "The killer whales did not kill anyone though... they must of just been playing rough" -yeah of course- -g-
Now I am a bit of a conspiracy theorist, and I reckon I have these Orcas sussed. Here is a story today... off Sardinia.

Would not be hugely surprised to hear that the Orcas are behind it. -g-
