The Whale That Ate Jaws

The great white shark and the killer whale are the most formidable predators in the sea. These animals are so dangerous that they would never challenge each other…or so we thought. One morning, off the Californian coast, a boatload of tourists witnessed the ultimate clash of the titans: an unexpected killing challenges the great white shark’s supremacy as the ultimate predator when one became prey to a killer whale.

The Whale That Ate Jaws examines this extraordinary incident. Featuring amazing underwater footage of two whales feeding on the shark, this show reveals an astonishing new perspective on the relationship between the ocean’s two top predators.

Killer Whale attacking Trainer at Seaworld

Near Death at SeaWorld -Worldwide exclusive video, obtained via FOIA, depicting a serious aggression incident by the killer whale Kasatka against her SeaWorld San Diego trainer Ken Peters in 2006.

In the video, Kasatka grabs her trainer’s foot and will not let go, dunking him under the water for extended periods of time. Peters, who remains eerily calm, finally manages to free himself, only to have Kasatka charge him over the barrier net.

This video was presented at trial in the case of SeaWorld v US Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis. Judge Ken Welsch, who ruled largely against the company, called the video “chilling”.
