Incredible rare footage shows a pod of orcas and sperm whales in a fraught battle.

The large pod of orcas can be seen laying siege to a maternal pod of sperm whales, possibly to steal prey.

A whale-watching vessel filmed the extremely rare event on March 24 in the Bremer Canyon, 70km off the coast from Bremer Bay, Western Australia, Australia.

Naturaliste Charters, a whale-watching company, had been tracking the orcas as they searched for food.
