Killer whales or orcas belong to the dolphin family – the largest of which. They are carnivorous, with sea lions, seals, squid and fish as their favorite meals. Orcas need to feed and for that, they need to do whatever they can just to get some food. At times, they may even get in trouble while going on a hunt.
Somewhere off the coast of British Columbia, a killer whale got stranded on the rocks. Fortunately for the beautiful creature, an animal rescue group stepped in to offer help.
It was revealed that the orca was female and that she was spotted by this man who knew right away that she is in dire need of help. The man contacted Guardians from Hartley bay, a B.C.-based animal rescue group.
The orca was stranded on the rocks presumably from hunting food.
Not only did this animal group come to the rescue but also those from For Whales. Everyone volunteered to help the big mammal get off the rocks, in which she’d been stranded for hours.
Rescuers came to the scene to help the animal.
What the volunteers did was cover the animal with sheets and tarps. They then doused her with water to make sure she stays wet and cool. A water pump was also assembled at the scene to provide more water for the orca.
The animal rescue groups said that the orca was aware that people were helping her. She then cried out of fear and it was such a heartbreaking sound to hear.
They've stayed with the orca to keep her wet and cool until the tide comes in.
Slowly, the tide began to rise, but still, it took long that rescuers needed to stay to make sure the whale was still wet and cool. The whale had been stuck in the area for over eight hours. Eventually, the water was at the right level for the orca to move and get away from the spot.
