Sea Shepherd Attacked

5/1/10

In what at first appears to be a massive blow, Japanese whalers today rammed the Sea Shepherd’s Adi Gil slicing off the front of the hull and sinking the high tech $1.5million vessel. They failed to kill the crew of six who were all safely rescued but they did succeed in drawing attention to their grotesque behaviour and still have two other anti- waling ships to contend with, both of which are currently engaging the whalers near Antarctica.

SS Captain Paul Watson told the media "If they think that our remaining two ships will retreat from the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary in the face of their extremism, they will be mistaken."

"We now have a real whale war on our hands now and we have no intention of retreating."

You can do your part to help Sea Shepherd defend the whales. Give generously to Sea Shepherd:
