Thursday, August 21, 2014, 3:32 PM - A boat crew near Ketchikan, Alaska got a front row seat of nature in action earlier this month.

"An Alaska a sea lion was hiding under our fishing boat because he was being stalked by a killer whale," Anglers Adventures writes on YouTube.

"When we decided to leave the area the whale attacked the sea lion and tossed him 20 feet into the air!"



Orcas -- also referred to as killer whales -- don't pose any direct threat to humans, but they love to dine on sea lions.

After tossing prey into the air, orcas typically finish their hunt by delivering a powerful blow to the head.

The incredible footage was captured on August 15 of this year.
