At 2:50 in the video you can see shallow slices in the fin whale's back consistent with injuries from a boat's propeller. That boat ran over the fin whale! No respect.

Alex

I'm sure having the boat right on top of it didn't exactly help to give the less-maneuverable fin whale the upper hand in the struggle either - way to interfere!

Rocio G

'Orcas attack' is the only line people will stick with even though they are only trying to provide for themselves, but yeah okay.

Kris Finn

Well, I've never read of killer whales attacking fin whale cow-calf pairs, so with fin whales it's not one bit unusual.
