Orca vs Shark vs Dog

On Boxing Day at Blue Cliffs Beach near Tuatapere, residents witnessed a group of orca whales attacking a shoal of sharks. One shark desperate to escape from the enormous beasts even beached itself on the sand. As witnesses gathered on the shore, one plucky dog, called Flea, couldn’t resist trying to get involved and can be seen approaching a stranded shark before barking at it. It is thought that there were around six whales and six sharks in the water. Peter Robertson said his dog had gone into the water when it became excited by what was happening. Robertson added: “It would appear the whales were fighting the sharks … the sharks were coming ashore because they didn’t want to be in the water.”
