Whale Attack

An orca whale - otherwise known as the killer whale.
Passengers on a whale-watching excursion in Monterey Bay, Calif., on Mother's Day, 2004, witnessed a huge gray whale and her calf locked in mortal combat with a determined gang of killer whales. Using actual video footage from eyewitnesses and the latest scientific analysis, Whale Attack investigates this rarely seen assault and shows viewers how this attack changed our understanding of the secrets that lie beneath the waves.
