Photo taken at Westport, Washington USA
Seals and Sea Lions will grab a fish, a salmon in this photo, and slam it onto the surface of the water rendering it stunned and almost lifeless They will then toss it around before eating out the belly of the fish. In this photo the salmon had already been rendered helpless and was flipped so hard that his head came off.
I have witnessed terrified Salmon swim completely out of the water and up onto the shore to try and escape from these viscous predators.
