killing whales to "examin their tissues" is a thin excuse
for selling them as a food source.

I totally agree with Padraig. I think the worst part of it is Steve Irwin was a good guy who helped animals in a peaceful way, I can guarantee if he was still here he would not endorse crashing into other vessels to prove a point! It seems they are more interested in the publicity than helping the whales.

its a sign of just how stupid these people are,that they think painting their boat black will help them sneak up on the Japaneese.In the antarctic no lessI
