Well, this is alarming

This article from the Times of London describes a finding that increasing numbers of orcas are switching to mammal diets -- a development that has some people calling for orca culls to protect threatened species such as sea otters and Steller's sea lions.
In a simultaneous development, there are reports that orcas have been showing up in the Canadian arctic, preying on sea mammals there.
