Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Agitated orca (killer whale), kills and devours dolphin, as tourists watch

The attack occurred just a few weeks after the tragic death of Dawn Brancheau, 40,“trainer” at SeaWorld’s Shamu Stadium in Orlando, Florida.

[Note: The news of the attack which occurred on or about March 28, 2010, was buried by Google, and only became known to us when a reader submitted a link to the photo.]

The dolphin died moments later as  the rest of the whales began to devour her and her helpless pup.

The attack occurred at a seaside spot called Black Rocks, in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand, where tourist flock to watch dolphins, invariably agitating and harming the animals.

“The boat was just 50 to 100m away while the killing occurred, as the other pseudo orcas fled.” one of the tour operators declared proudly, calling the incident a “one in a million” chance.
