There are multiple reports of large numbers of the transient mammal eating Bigg’s Killer Whales cruising near Vancouver and San Juan Islands.

Chek News in Canada reports at least 50 of the orcas have been seen, and experts state they are here not for the salmon -which is what the Southern Residents orcas eat- but prefer other mammals, specifically porpoises, dolphins, sea lions and even young whales if they find one.

The following groups are reported to have been seen:

• Five families off the San Juan Islands: T49As, T65Bs, T75Bs, T75Cs, T123s
• Ten families in the Strait of Georgia: T18s, T86As, T99s, T101s, T36, T36As, T36Bs, T137s, T87, T124C
• A final two groups in the Strait of Georgia: T124As and T124Ds.
