    I have been following this. I like Orcas and think they're pretty amazing creatures. Think about it this way, they will occasionally hangout in channels specifically to target moose that swim across because they like to and they can.

    There's no doubt in my mind that this is deliberate. I think I remember reading in another coverage about it that ship traffic in that area has greatly increased.

    I think they're probably pissed off that all the boats are making it that much harder for them to hunt, and they're expressing their frustration.

      It also could be that the boats dump their garbage in the sea, and the orcas are reminding the boats that it's feeding time.

        That would be bad news for us and them. If they decided to get rough, there's not doubt we could respond in kind, and easily win; but it seems pointless. Especially when they've been known to help human and even on occasion hunt cooperatively with fisherman.

        Part of what makes this so troubling is that until this, pretty much universally they've been known to be friendly and helpful to humans, and have never been recorded attacking them.
