Video: Killer Whale Snatches Halibut from Alaskan Angler

A few anglers in Alaska recently had an up-close-and-personal encounter with a killer whale when it approached their boat and grabbed a halibut from the end of a fishing line.

In a clip recently posted by The Alaska Life, you can hear the men behind the line talking, but they seem relatively calm considering what happened. This has led to some comments online alleging the men knew the whale was in the area and were purposely trying to entice it closer.

Also, no additional details about the location of the encounter with the orca have been reported. Do you think it was a truly candid moment?
