Orcas have been cruising through Puget Sound during the past week, to the delight of residents and, it seems, to one resident’s dogs.
The accompanying footage shows two dogs barking enthusiastically from the end of a dock as orcas swim past.
Orca Network, which reports on sightings throughout the Pacific Northwest, stated on Facebook: “Pups had to things to say…”
The nonprofit added: “Several matrilines of Bigg’s orcas (mammal-eating type) have been keeping a presence inland Puget Sound this past week. One group, the T65s & T77s have been inhabiting waters in southern reaches. On July 3rd a close pass in Pickering Passage .”
The footage was captured by Chad Queirolo, who could not be reached for comment.
On July 1, the same orcas were documented swimming only yards from shore at the west end of Hale Pass in the south portion of Puget Sound.
