An otter escapes the jaws of an orca by seeking refuge on a man’s boat

An otter escapes the jaws of an orca by seeking refuge on a man’s boat.

John Dornellas, 37, recently witnessed a close encounter between an orca and its prey, an otter.

Exploring Alaska and working for a company that runs boat tours in the area, Donella’s had a near-death experience right before his eyes.

Dornellas was on his boat when he noticed a disturbance in the water. He noticed something swimming closer and closer to his boat to avoid being eaten by an orca. You can see the whale’s dorsal fin approaching as an otter runs to avoid being killed. Suddenly, the otter comes out of the water and runs towards the boat with Donella, who can’t believe what he sees.

Are you kidding me?”Donella spoke loudly as he filmed the meeting. “Go back inside, man,” he said to the otter. For the next few minutes, the otter remained safely on the boat while the orca circled its prey. At one point, the otter returns to the water but changes his mind in favor of the boat.

This close encounter lasted for some time, as the otter eventually dived back into the water as the orca moved away from the boat.
