Animal news: Attack of the killer whales! (I’m rooting for the whales)

My Animal News Maven, Ellen Kaye, sends me all sorts of around-the-world items of great interest.

Today, from the Guardian, this.

Scientists have been left baffled by incidents of orcas ramming sailing boats along the Spanish and Portuguese coasts.

In the last two months, from southern to northern Spain, sailors have sent distress calls after worrying encounters. Two boats lost part of their rudders, at least one crew member suffered bruising from the impact of the ramming, and several boats sustained serious damage.

They are wonderful, intelligent animals. Clearly they are so pissed with us. Some of us.
