Orca Talks to a Motorboat

(YouTube link)

A killer whale named Luna was separated from his family and lived off the coast of Vancouver Island until his death in 2006. He was friendly with people in boats who went out to visit him, but did he like the people or the boats? In this video, he is imitating the sound of a boat motor. Was he trying to communicate with the boat? Read more about the orca at Wikipedia. Link -via Buzzfeed

This actually makes a terrible amount of sense now. Luna died as a result of a collision with a tugboat and its incredibly powerful engine blades.

Maybe he's mentally challenged and doesnt know it's a boat, maybe it's like me walking up to a tree and trying to have a conversation my making leaves in the wind noises.

He's saying "You know the machine you have there that makes this sound...'PPPppppffffffff'? Could you, like, stop running it in these waters? I have to live in this area and you're choking it up with gas and oil residue, assholes. It'd be like me coming into your living room and farting. Knock it off, butt-heads. Thank you."
