Do whales attack humans?

Asked by Colson Hamilton

In theory, they too could eat a human. But as of 2020, there have been no reports of wild orcas ever killing a human. Currently there are only a handful of reports of encounters or “attacks” on humans. Of those, they usually result in the whale grabbing a person briefly and then releasing them.
