West of Hvammsvík in Hvalfjörður, a killer whale family was filmed hunting for a seal near the shore. It even seemed that the mother could teach the calves to hunt.
There was no chase, which confirms the supposition that hunting was only a lesson for the young. This two-minute event was filmed by Hörður Jónsson.
Both the killer whale and the seal have been recognized by the locals. According to the Vísir newspaper, the killer whale family was seen in the Westfjords in early May. The seal was a regular in the area and the Hörður family even named it Sella.
Hörður admitted that it was an “absolutely amazing scene”, even though it was so cruel.
