Shut up dude and just enjoy the majestic, indifferent cruelty of nature.
Yeah once the seal is broken the warranty's void anyway, so just enjoy what you got.

Whoa, I didn't know they hunted like this.
A local barn cat does this with the rodents that fall prey to his polydactyl catchers mitts. He winds up, and _vrrooom_ the hapless vole goes flying across the yard. Often the cat will himself flip in the air out of excitement and carryover from the pitch. I would much rather he just clobbered the little guys in one shot, but that's the problem with outsourcing the dirty work.
What do you expect? Its not like they have video games.

Because it can, not because it really needs to, when it could just bite one in half and be done with the kill.
In the related videos, I'm now watching an orca rescue.
5-6 people work 8 hours to rescue it, when it would toss any of them at least 85 feet in the air before devouring them. Makes you wonder if maybe we have too many mirror neurons or something.

No wonder they kill their trainers sometimes.

Who are the maniacs filming this?
Yeah in other videos it's the same thing. I guess I could see the thrill of capturing something on film that doesn't get filmed too often causing excitement, but you wouldn't have the same reaction to accidentally filming a car intentionally hitting a child, which is pretty much what this is like.
If it was a child ORCA whale, but then we'd need underwater cars, fish police etc.
I guess maybe where these people are from they regard seals the same way we feel about deer around here. Mild hatred with a bit of hope to witness their spectacular demise

I would rather be punted 80 feet into the air then just unceremoniously get bitten in half and watch my entrails unfurl into the ocean in a cloud of blood.

Assholes of the ocean.
The orcas are kind of jerks, too.
Orcas are both jerks and assholes?
AND they're inconsiderate.

The strong male who punted the seal is named “T69C,” and was born in 1995. According to NOAA, orcas can live to be around 50–80 years old, so T696 is still very much in its prime.
Cetacean researcher Chris Parsons explained the seal tossing behavior to the Earth Touch News Network: “They don’t often eat the seals (after hitting them). But when they hit Dall’s porpoises, they do it to eviscerate them. They hit them so hard that their entrails pop out, which they leave behind after eating the muscle and blubber.”
"Got hit so hard his entrails popped out" would be a good obituary.

Seals get the predator they deserve, not the predator they need.
