The one where the captured whale gets pissed off after being fed something weird (metal laced potato was what it looked like) and goes on a rampage?

FWIW, I think there have been zero verified reports of orcas attacking humans in the wild. At least that was the case several years ago when I looked.

No! Maybe there's two! In this one, a fisherman kills a pregnant female and the male then sets about taking his revenge by killing the fishermans friends and then setting up a final showdown on an iceberg.

No I'm not making that up!

Yep she gets her leg chomped off when the house falls into the sea!

The bit that disturbed me was when there is a beached whale at one stage, if you look it is still breathing, which made me wonder if they actually killed a real whale (it seems a bit random to come across a beached whale when making a film about them)?

Killer Whale are very clever hunters, did anyone watch the Frozen Planet documentary a while back, they showed Orca practicing the same technigue as shown in link, on the filming crew's small boat, but I can't seem to find link for that seen.

wilk . Brilliant. i would be thinking that the Orcas would want to continue their game and tip up the boat! Imagine that!
