A Denman Island family had some Sunday evening excitement, watching from their home as a pod of orcas came hunting for dinner.
“Dinner time on Denman last night as a group of orcas attacked a family of river otters in front of our deck,” said Lawrence Justrabo in a Monday morning Facebook post. “At least one missing otter, maybe more. Some survived. Once-in-a-lifetime footage provided by an ever-lucky 17-year-old who always seems to be in the right place at the right time.”
“I saw him eat the otter, yeah,” a female voice can be heard while the video plays. “I don’t think they (otters) were all there, I think one of the parents still has the babies. I did see one come in earlier, I think it was going out for food again… but it obviously will not be coming back…That was awful.”
