Killer whales have already sunk several boats off the coast of Europe.

Killer whales fear the Spanish coast — why?

Orcas terrorize the Spanish coast – why?

In early May, 3 killer whales reportedly attacked a yacht in the Strait of Gibraltar, damaging the ship's rudder.

According to scientists, information about aggressive killer whales swimming off the Spanish coast appeared in May 2020, and since then, cases have only become more frequent.

Presumably, the aggressive behavior of killer whales in the direction of boats with people is caused by a traumatic incident that occurred with one of the representatives of the species. Thus, the killer whale developed a “trauma-based defensive behavior” that later began to be copied by the entire population in the area. Adult killer whales began to teach their offspring how to properly attack ships.
