No orca has ever killed a human in the wild yet the majority of us will watch this with utter fear. Interesting isn't it? Why do we fear and eagerly read the headline stories the media like to feed us, why do the masses choose to believe the hysteria over the facts and reality? How can the medias opinion control our emotions so much? Experiment! Let's all take a moment to watch this video again, try to reduce your anxiety that the kids will get attacked (as we know they don't) remove the video sound so the onlookers shouting not to move and their groans of distress don't influence your emotion. Instead watch it again, turn the sound off and imagine these calm and intelligent mammals seek nothing from those kids except to satisfy their curiosity. Imagine the orca are simply passing the kids because they too are in the water, nothing more, nothing less, they mean them no harm.. So tell me, can you do it or are you still experiencing fear when watching the video? Honesty please! I'm curious.....
Whatever the outcome, one things for certain, those kids will never forget that once in a lifetime moment.
