BBC Nature - Humpback whales intervene in killer whale hunt

BBC Nature
After the attack, two humpback whales moved into the area where the calf was last seen alive. They continued to make trumpeting calls, rolled in the water and slashed their tails aggressively at killer whales that came near. 
According to Mrs Schulman-Janiger the whole encounter lasted seven hours.
I was going to turn this into a parable for North Carolina voters (and those who didn't bother yesterday) but it was a bit of a stretch and the whales are interesting enough on their own without making it all about us. Stupid humans.
