Rowdy Orcas

Yachtsmen off the coast of northwestern Spain have experienced some terrifying moments in recent weeks as orcas inexplicably rammed their vessels, causing damage to rudders and hulls. Officials have since banned sailboats less than 50 feet in length from navigating the affected coastal waters except for a specific route to the high seas. Biologist Bruno Díaz of Spain’s Bottlenose Dolphin Research Institute told reporters that the ramming is probably being done by “immature teenage” orcas getting rowdy.
