Killer Whale steals fisherman's prize catch

It's hard enough to land a good halibut without the kind of competition faced by these fishermen:

Luckily, the video evidence - shot by Frank Sanders of Alaska Trophy Outfitter - was up on LiveLeak and the Facebook page of Alaska Life, so the fishermen will be spared the ordeal of having to come up with some outlandish tale about the "one that got away."

Killer Whales, more properly known as Orcas, are common in all the world's oceans.

Their diet does apparently include halibut, but they have been observed dining on a wide variety of fish and sea-borne mammals, reptiles, invertebrates and birds.

There's more neat animal videos in our video galleries. Check it out here.
