The Telegraph reported that the whale had actually attacked three boats, destroying two of them, on British soil, in Gibraltar.

Scientists believe that Gladys seeks revenge after experiencing a traumatic event, such as being hit by a boat or being caught in a fishing net.

“It was this traumatized killer whale that triggered the physical contact behavior with the boat,” Alfredo López Fernández, a biologist at the University of Aveiro, Portugal and a representative of the Atlantic Orca Working Group, told The Telegraph.

Other orcas began to mimic his behaviour.
