Seal Borrows B.C. Boat To Escape Killer Whales Like A Boss

Seal hops in B.C. boat to escape killer whales like a boss.

Talk about being ocean smart.

A seal swimming off the coast of Vancouver Island escaped a pod of killer whales by hitching a ride on someone’s boat on Monday.

Peter Hamilton, founder of the Lifeforce ecology organization, said the seal had about 10 orcas on its tail.

The seal, who clearly wasn’t having any of thatwhole “being lunch” thing, hopped into the back of a boat and camped out for about half an hour.

Hamilton said the whales eventually gave up and left, and the seal “cautiously” slipped back into the water and swam way.

The ecologist told The Huffington Post Canada it’s an incident that “happens very rarely.”

Last summer, another seal pulled the same stunt to avoid being eaten by killer whales in B.C.’s Desolation Sound.
To help protect the animals in B.C., people are advised to stay stay at least 100 metres away from marine animals or birds. If boaters find themselves stuck too close to an animal, they’re advised to stay still and let the animals pass.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
