Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

New Zealand residents were treated to a spectacular event just before New Year, when a beachside encounter between orcas and sharks turned into a surf-churning blood-in-the-water battle worthy of a cheesy horror flick.

The bloody battle, captured on video by local residents, took place at Blue Cliffs Beach in Tuatapere in New Zealand.

The sharks – an unnamed species, but too small to be man- or, as the video shows, dog-eaters – come off second best in the clash, even beaching themselves to escape the larger and more aggressive orcas.

As one local, Peter Robinson (who owns the dog seen harassing a shark in the video) said, “the sharks were coming ashore because they didn’t want to be in the water.”

Looking at the video, El Reg would have to agree with the sharks’ decision. And yes, it’s a slow news day in Australia. ®
