‘Whale Wars’ Collision Caught On Video

The new season of “Whale Wars” should be intense after a collision between Japanese whalers and activists from the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society was captured on video on Wednesday in the Antarctic.

"Whale Wars" (Animal Planet)

Six crew members of Sea Shepherd were saved from the icy waters after their new boat, the Ady Gil, was rammed and severely damaged by a Japanese whaling vessel, the Shonan Maru 2, according to reports.  One crew member reportedly suffered a minor injury.

“It was aiming at the crew’s command quarters, which could have certainly killed somebody,” Sea Shepherd captain Paul Watson told the AP.

The Japanese crew claimed the Ady Gil was moving toward their ship with intent to ram, but misjudged the point of impact, according to reports.

The ongoing battle between the two sides is what is featured on the Animal Planet series, “Whale Wars.”  The Sea Shepherd team wants to put an end to Japanese whaling, as some whale species are near extinction.   The activists work to keep the whales safe from countries that still allow commercial whaling, according to the show’s web site.

Animal Planet officials are set to release a statement regarding the matter later on Wednesday.

      THE JAPANESE USE THE STUDY OF WHALES AS AN EXCUSE TO KILL AND EAT THEM.THIS NOTHING NEW,DURING THE 70 S IT WAS THE SAME. The Sea Shepherd team wants to put an end to Japanese whaling, as some whale species are near extinction. DO WE CARE ?BOYCOTT JAPANESE PRODUCTS THAT WOULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE. WILL WE? PROBABLY NOT,THE AMERICAN ATTITUDE IS LET JOE DO IT.

      When I first heard of whaling I thought what was the big deal. After watching what goes on during the hunts I must side with the activist. I think that whaling should be stopped and that there needs to be more government support to stop whaling regardless of what the Japanese businesses want. Australia can not stop it alone they need more support from other nations.

If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

    29. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

      One thing I want to say is the fact car insurance cancellations is a terrifying experience and if you’re doing the best things as being a driver you simply will not get one. Lots of people do receive the notice that they’ve been officially dropped by the insurance company they then have to fight to get additional insurance from a cancellation. Low cost auto insurance rates are generally hard to get from cancellation. Knowing the main reasons with regard to auto insurance cancellation can help individuals prevent sacrificing one of the most significant privileges obtainable. Thanks for the thoughts shared via your blog.
