2009-02-02 Sea Shepherd crew member hurls a bottle of rotten butter

    Newer Older

    Sea Shepherd crew member Laurens De Groot hurls a bottle of butyric acid (rotten butter) at Japanese harpoon whaling ship, the Yushin Maru No. 1, as the Sea Shepherd helicopter flies overhead. The Yushin used water cannons to keep Sea Shepherd boats at bay in New Zealand territorial waters north of the Ross Sea off Antarctica on Monday, Feb. 2. 2009. Sea Shepherd engaged the ship, along with two other vessels from the Japanese whaling fleet - the Yushin Maru No. 3 and factory vessel, the Nisshin Maru, as part of Operation Musashi, its 2008-2009 campaign to end what it deems to be illegal whaling operations in Antarctic waters.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Whaling ⇂, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      But surely not in NZ 'territorial waters'? You mean NZ economic zone? (The difference is 12 miles vs 200 miles.)

      Hi Tiny Lab. I tagged this group "photos and videos courtesy of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society". I uploaded them because I support Sea Shepherd. If Sea Shepherd's message is spread as much as possible, it can help promote positive changes on this endangered planet.
