According to a report from the International Business Times, crewmembers from the Japanese whaling vessel Nisshin Maru were attacked by a pod of orcas after jumping into the ocean when they smelled a gas leak aboard. In the incident, writes the IBT, 16 whalers were killed, including at least one who was "gobbled down alive" by an orca.
"It was horrific," a witness is reported to have said. "The water was red with blood, there were bodies everywhere."
News of the violent scene is quickly spreading across social media, leaving many in disbelief -- and rightfully so. The story is a bunch of baloney.
