This incredible rare footage shows the moment a group of Orcas hunt down and kill a lone Minke Whale. We see the Orcas chasing down and surrounding the Minke whale, before savagely attacking and eating it.

Mike Korostelev took the footage in the Avachinsky Gulf of the Pacific Ocean while working with the Russian Orca project. The wildlife photographer was thrilled to not only have seen this unusual occurrence but to have caught it on camera too.

He said: "I felt really happy and privileged to see such a rare wildlife moment." 
Take a look at the footage below.
