Ocean Film Fest 2010: A Killer Whale Takes Down A... Great White Shark?? (Video)

Killer whales are fierce apex predators of the ocean. But fierce enough to take down a great white shark like it's no problem at all? Apparently so. In an unprecedented sighting, a killer whale takes on a great white shark who approaches too close for comfort to the whale's pod, which includes a new calf. The documentary The Whale That Ate Jaws describes the whole event as it happened in the waters off San Francisco, California.
