It is reported that the researchers were studying the consequences of an oil spill when they saw the two predators chasing the dolphin. The video shows one of the killer whales appearing on the surface, holding the dolphin in its mouth before diving into the water.
According to Simon Elven, one of the researchers, the next day the gnawed remains of the Heaviside dolphin were discovered.
Elven said that during his 20 year career working with marine animals, he has never seen such disfigured bodies.
