Really, the only animal that DARES to do THAT is the Orca but they do that in pods of hunting Orcas. They have to be very organinized because a hit from a whale's tail is enough to kill a orca.

Where does the baleen whale live?
There is no such thing as "The Baleen Whale." There are toothed whales and baleen whales. Toothed whales have teeth in their mouthes and baleen whales have baleen in their mouths. Baleen is a type of strainer. A Baleen whale eats by taking a lot of water and food in its mouth and forcing the water back out through the Baleen and eating the food. A number of different types of Baleen whales exist from the gigantic blue whales to intermediate sized right whales to the small Sei whales. A number of them eat in Arctic or Antarctic waters or in cold northern or southern waters. That is where they find food the easiest. In winter they come closer to the equator to have their babies and to breed.
