The Whale Wars TV show depicts the ongoing efforts of the Sea Shepherds – an environmental/conservation organization focused on preventing illegal whaling in Antarctic waters. In a post last year, I commented that I felt they were being tremendously irresponsible in playing their games with the Japanese whaling vessels in possibly the most dangerous waters on earth.
The video below shows the Japanese whaling vessel Shonan Maru No.2 as it makes contact with the high-tech Whale Wars motor vessel, Ady Gil.
The commentary I’ve read online today seems to point blame at the Japanese. This video seems to show that the Japanese vessel alters its course drastically to starboard.
I wonder if when Whale Wars comes back for another season they will delve into this incident.
