Watch a Pod of Whales Hunt Down a Shark

The footage was caught by Bruno Kataoka when he was operating his drone off the coast of Cronulla in Australia. It shows the shark straining to outrun the whales as they approach closer and closer. For a moment it looks as if the shark might be quicker, but then one of the whales cuts him off as they’re turning and dives down. The whale resurfaces with the shark in its clutches. Kataoka told 7 News it was amazing to witness such an event. “National Geographic guys [would be] waiting months to get such a thing, and we just happened to be there at the right moment, at the right time,” he said. they are known to eat fish and squid, and sometimes attack other marine mammals.
