    An Auckland man has been fined after apparently attempting to body slam into two orcas

    An Auckland man has been fined after apparently attempting to body slam into two orcas


    The Department of Conservation was shown a video of a 50-year-old, who after jumping off a boat, told those filming he touched it.

    DOC says the adult male orca with a calf was in water near Devonport.

    It says the stupid act endangered the man and the protected marine mammals, and stunned DOC staff.

    He's been fined 600-dollars
