Japanese Whaling Crew Eaten Alive By Killer Whales, 16 dead

japan-whaling-boat

A Japanese whaling crew has fallen victim to a dramatic full on assault by a school of killer whales, killing no less then 16 crew members and injuring 12, has reported the Japanese Government this morning.

The crew of the MV Nisshin Maru (日新丸), Japan’s primary whaling vessel and the world’s only whaler factory ship, was forced to leave the deck temporarily as a gas leak was detected within the ship’s processing factory that resulted in the ship being temporarily disabled all while continuing to carry approximately 1,000 tons of oil.

The resulting panic lead members of the ship to jump off the boat before proper emergency procedures were taken and lifeboats had been set to sea.  The swimming crew members were then ferociously attacked by a school of killer whales, that decimated a large number of the crew within moments. “It was horrific” claims Asuka Kumara, a mechanical engineer who witnessed the gruesome  scene. “The water was red with blood, there were bodies everywhere” he recalls in tears.

Within 30 minutes of the incident, 16 crew members had disappeared into the ocean.

The incident occurred in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, near the South Eastern Coast of South Africa, a controversial area to be whaling as a recent international court ruling has ordered the country to ends its whale hunt in the Antarctic. The East Asian nation halted its annual Antarctic whaling mission after the U.N.’s International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled last march the hunt violated an international moratorium on commercial whaling.

“It seems Japan just doesn’t give a damn about international law” explains environmental activist and spokesman for Greenpeace Canada, James Ben Shahali, based in Vancouver. “The waste of life is always a shame, but the whales are not to blame here, they were only doing what they are born to do: kill for food” he adds.

Some Greenpeace supporters have even celebrated the incident as a victory for the cause

Some Greenpeace supporters have even celebrated the incident as a victory for the fight against whale hunting worldwide

Japan has slaughtered over 6,000 whales since commercial whaling was made illegal by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) moratorium passed in 1986.

      I cannot celebrate the loss of these Crew members. This however, should be seen as a wake up call to all that take these intelligent Whales, treat them so cruelly, and slaughter them indiscriminately . We Humans have a long way to go before we finally realize we SHARE this Earth with all Creatures, We do NOT own it. We depend on each other for our existence. This was a tragedy, and it hopefully will open people’s eyes and they will SEE what REALLY HAPPENED HERE. Revenge , pure and simple, from Intelligent Beings that are not going to take it anymore.

      what is all this God would want us to do this and that. there is no god, i am sorry those men died but it is a sort of karma. and yes the whales dont kill men to eat them, but like great whites they will kill men and just leave them. i understand that these men were trying to make a living, but the japanese didnt care about whales becoming extinct, or endangered AT ALL.Its the animals world as much as ours. Animals dont create wars and pollute areas of the planet beyond reason, and all the other mental thing us humans do.

      Well if they was covered with whale blood and blubber then they were snacks because killer whales don’t normally attack humans, also if they just killed a whale it would have attracted the killer whales and the fools jump i8n the water.

      Karma- this article says that is horrific, what’s the different when the waters are filled with blood from the humans killing the whales or other feeling/intelligent beings? The whales are intelligent so perhaps were defending themselves from future killings. Humans dying too is a shame but this is more than an ironic twist of fate and nature. Japan too: stop killing the dolphins, how sick is that? All things in nature are to be respected and not harmed for food or sport.

      Whaling is hideous. Human life is as precious as whales’ lives. Killer whales are Orcas, the largest of the dolphin species and ruthless hunters. Norwegians are also whale hunters – why always criticize the Japanese? I was shocked to see so much hatred and disgust toward this people. WWII is a LONG time ago. The tsunami caused radio active poisoning of the sea, not the Japanese. What is international law worth when there is no control and no sanctions are the consequence of breaking those laws? What about the tuna, America’s favorite fish being nearly extinct? What about those “islands” of floating plastics in the oceans? Having lived in the US, I can’t help but think: hypocrites!

I am all for the stopping of the whales being slaughtered but to give all these comments on how great it is for people to be slaughtered is a little bit pathetic to say the least. Sounds like ur parents made a cracking job of bringing u all up. I could say a bit more but I would find it a waste of my time on infantiles such as yourselves.

Not like they suffer just as much, if not more, then the sea monsters that killed these 16 human beings. If you truly think death to soon, by actions out of your control, is something to rejoice about, then you do not give a damn about killer whales or human beings.

      I watched a documentary on the whale market in Japan. It’s mostly illegal, but fisherman still reap the benefits even though against law and maintaining the whale habbitat. This isn’t new people, they broke the law and we did nothing. The whales brought justice to these greedy bastards.

    • Michael on August 6, 2014 at 3:57 pm said:

      Some people here are so very narrow minded. Never a great day to celebrate human loss. No one can know the circumstances of why these people hunt whales. Ok for us to judge, when we have our government paying millions of our citizens who sit at home and don’t even work. Every country have different cultures and ethics and not the benefits we take for granted! Is very sad that whales are still hunted in these parts, but hopefully the Japanese can learn from such events and abide the laws to help protect the world we live in.

    • Blessings of Peace to those who lost their lives, I am sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you.
      A week ago I was on a sail boat, a mother whale came on one side of us 15 feet away as her tiwns came on the other side of us 10 feet away, they were swimming like dolphins, with so much Joy, the male whale took the outside passage and met up with them as they passed between two large rocks, us and the shore line. What a blessing they were I was in awe of their beauty.
      I pray this will be seen as a NO to stop killing whales all over the planet. So many animals all around the world are showing up in loving kindness to humans, they are feeling our love and care, sadly this can’t be said for those who make a living killing whales. God Bless them all.

      A group of men go out daily to slaughter Orca’s – Orca’s are an intelligent species that have close family units and mourn the loss or death of family members in their pods! (Sounds a little like we humans huh?)
      SO that said, when they are under threat, and that threat falls in the water and is proven to be weak/helpless without their big boat and weapons, the Orca’s will seize the opportunity to neutralize the clear threat that these people present!

      God instructed us to care about the earth as stewards of it, not destroy it in the way we have done. Never ever use God as an excuse to destroy or decimate the beauty that He gave us – it’s not about caring more for people or animals, it’s about respecting our place in the world as a part of it. We are not above the laws of nature or science, but as living things we are subject to them just as much as everything else.

      Correct, Andrew, we are to be stewards of the earth and it inhabitants. We were not intended to plunder and destroy it. These animals take only what they need and contribute back to the earth. We would do well to learn from them instead of abusing and destroying the very Earth we were entrusted to protect. Sorry Tammy Lee, the Bible you quoted is more in reference to mans behavior. Animals are still obeying the laws of God and nature. We are the problem here, not the animals and yes I value them as Gods gifts to be treasured and protected as he intended. You see the results every day of mans abuse of the planet. Is there no hint in there for you? I never revel in anyone’s death and am sorry to hear of the loss of life here but these animals were eating to survive, not commiting an act of greed.

    • Donna on July 29, 2014 at 1:16 pm said:

      Tammy Lee I agree that these peoples death should not be celebrated in any way.I can see why people find pleasure in the irony, but the key is compassion…. Killing whales, which we know to be emotive and intelligent animals is barbaric (but hey I eat cows). So we all have a lot to improve about the way we live, before we go so far to cast stones, let alone think we know the laws of the universe, so much as to judge these souls.

      Tammy Lee, agree with Polly Luke and Andrew. God would not want us to do anymore than protect his creatures, including fellow humans. Hitler tried to destroy a race, if this is condoned, a gentle non treatening race will be destroyed. We have to protect and not decimate God’s creatures to suit our purposes.

And sad to say, we human did not contribute anything good back but destroy this live world. Human or world greatest enemy is Human ourself. One day we will kill ourself one way or the other. Don’t BLAME it on animals and don’t ever claim sea and world is given to MAN!! Is Human who took the sea and world!

      They deserved it and I am happy, humans as a whole are fucking up this planet and I feel no pity for these morons.

  34. It is sad for any family to lose a loved one or relative. The whales are definitely not to blame and hope that this doesn’t create a stir/backlash that Orcas are violent ferocious beasts.

    I find it very hypocritical that they find human blood in the water as horrific, yet they spill the blood of so many sentient whales into the ocean in whaling and drive hunts. Animal welfare is an emotive subject but dictates that you should at least consider what the animal experiences and feelings are in order to treat it with respect. Japanese whalers do not conform to this thinking.

    …a prejudice or bias in favour of the interests of members of one’s own species and against those of members of other species.

    • Morten on July 30, 2014 at 6:04 am said:

      The Orca is actually categorized as a dolphin. This is because dolphins are a sub-category of a sub-category of whales. This makes all dolphins whales, but it is necessary to note that not all whales are dolphins. ( Like the “All squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares” theory ) The Orca, or Killer whale as it was errantly named, is in fact, a dolphin. It is the largest of the dolphins. Links to the relevant Wikipedia articles are provided below. Scientifically, the Orca is a dolphin. It is a member of the family of whales called delphinidae, the dolphin family.

    • Matt, your comment is on point. To truly support our planet and all species, we all need to be vegan. It may seem difficult at first, but it’s so much easier now than it was even 15 years ago. I invite people to so some research and start deleting animal based food out of their diet. It’s also very good for the planet.

      We all need to be vegan? Maybe someone should swim out there and convince the whales or run over to Africa and teach the Lions to be.

  79. This is what happens when after centuries of humans murdering and raping the planet, nature fights back. It may not be nice to celebrate someone’s death, however, these people made a living out of murdering intelligent beings who have their own society. When you go to war or wage war on Nature, she will fight back eventually.

    I would just like to gently remind everyone that our planet is out of balance and one of the ways to get it back is to live the compassionate vegan lifestyle. It’s not only good for us, health wise, it’s obviously good for the animals and the planet since the animals-grown-for-food industry pollutes the planet mercilessly.

    I hope most of you people know that both animals in this scene are both living breathing things. Whoever says they should have died, you my friends are idiotic. What if that was you, and that was your job because you didn’t know what to do in life, would you say they should have died then? And the whales, they were trying to protect themselves, they didn’t care if the humans died or not, they just wanted them to stop. But still, for the people with the whales, I have one thing to say to you. You want your own species to die, you want basically yourself to die. I am for animals and all, but I think all of you are stupid for thinking that people, PEOPLE, should have died.

  96. life is precious whale or human or blue green alge everyone and thing has its place on this one earth we share all must learn to use and consume in the least wasteful ways possible peace be with all of you. If someone takes your coat give them your shoes also. try and love one another friend or foe be kind to all, and treat others as you would want to be treated.

    shouldn’t it be a sign to stop all whaling, and stop murdering the dolphins… they do enough of that in taiji and its kept secret. 23,000 dolphins are killed a year in taiji alone. I am aware this is about whales killing a japanese crew, however it seemed fit to bring up the subject of murdering dolphins, since they do quite a bit of that. They then package it as whale meat because its cheaper. But dolphins have an outrageously high amount of mercury in them, so murdering the dolphins, then selling the meat, only is hurting us.

  142. only 16……

  143. In my experience the people who get the most upset over whales being hunted usually are the same people who have no qualms about aborting an unborn child. A fish has more value to them than another human being.

    • A whale isn’t a fish. FYI.

  164. Paul Scutts on August 1, 2014 at 6:14 pm said:

    Taking the emotion out of this situation, it was inevitable that this would happen. Whaling vessels, like all fishing vessels, discharge their offal overboard. Killer whales, like sharks, are nature’s scavengers and follow these vessels. Human beings in the water cast the same profile as seals, killer whales’ preferred food. Hence, what happened was inevitable. Who is to blame for this tragedy? The government under who’s flag the vessel sails, the owners and operators of the vessel, the sailors who man the vessel and the people who consume the produce of the vessel. Trying to excuse the sailors on the basis that they were just trying to make a living is the same as the defendants at Nuremberg claiming that they were just following orders. It didn’t work then and it doesn’t work now.

      Yes Chris Adams, the difference being that chickens do not get a single day of freedom between birth and death, and are instead imprisoned, pumped full of growth hormones, and industrially converted into meat as soon as their brief lives are over at a rate of millions a day.
      So you think that’s more humane?

    To rejoice in the death and suffering of any sentient being is not skillful and lacks compassion and an understanding of the law of Karma.

    To reply to you Karma people.These are the results of past actions committed many lifetimes ago and not necessarily because of actions done in this life.

    Being happy at the deaths of those people, you are creating the causes of suffering for yourselves in the future. The law of Karma does not teach that killing for food is good, so I’m sorry Jboy you are not correct.Killing any sentient being creates the causes for you to experience suffering of a similar type in the future.

    Karma is not divine justice or retribution it is simply a natural law of cause and effect.We must have compassion for ALL living beings no matter what they are whales or people.

    How many of you eat the flesh of other animals? Do you think they want to be slaughtered or killed just so you can enjoy a nice steak or chicken? Countless millions are killed to satisfy your craving. So please have compassion in your hearts and do not rejoice at the deaths of others no matter who or what…

Or maybe all of you who are celebrating their deaths think it’s justifiable eating poor defenseless animals for food. The Japanese use whale meat for food, so is this any different from what we do? ……It’s not healthy to celebrate any human or animals life no matter what the circumstances.

    Everyone who is chanting for the Whales deserves to have their loved ones kills by animals. Dudes that died probably make less then minimum wage and just trying to get their kids through school. I’m disappointed.

  211. What goes round comes round. To the arrogant twats who side with the killers that died – you think animals don’t suffer? Wake up. Natural justice has been done.

    “The waste of life is always a shame, but the whales are not to blame here, they were only doing what they are born to do: kill for food” – Not quite. Orcas kill for fun. Just like humans do…

  213. The killer whales no doubt follow the whalers to clean up any waste products thrown overboard after each kill. Now they know there are snacks to be had in rubber duckies too. Good luck with that.

  214. For the record, the Japanese feel they are superior to everyone and everything on this Earth. They would kill and eat anyone commenting here if they tasted even vaguely like fish. (Japanese are the most racist and twisted people on the planet. They only barely tolerate you and don’t want you on their islands. Good riddance.)

  226. I too am very glad to see this round’s fight for survival was given to the animals. Who deserve, and should win many, many more. But, you know it is very doubtful that these people will change their ways. They will continue killing defenceless animals, because it is all about that God Damn Dollar.

    “It seems Japan just doesn’t give a damn about international law” explains environmental activist and spokesman for Greenpeace Canada, James Ben Shahali, based in Vancouver.

    I disagree. It appears the U.N.’s International Court of Justice (ICJ)passes laws they do not intend on enforcing. Or is it possible they are being paid to look the other way?

  229. You all are so cruel, for thinking it’s Karma, when they only got 16 of them!

    16 vs 6000!

  230. Which scene is described here: the slaughtering of the defenseless whales or the accident. “The water was red with blood, there were bodies everywhere” he recalls in tears.

    I simly cannot feel sorry for people who kill our seas!

  231. @ NoMore: Per Greenpeace – “thousands of tonnes of whale meat today remains in frozen storage in Japan because demand is so low. Despite falling catches, the stockpile of whale meat continues to grow.”

    And – does this sound like food:

    “We were surprised to find thousands of approved patents for products or processes listing whales as a possible ingredient – from golf balls to hair dye; eco-friendly laundry detergent to confectionaries/candy; and health drinks to bio-diesel.” (us.whales.org.)

    The whalers utilize brutal, tortuous techniques to kill these whales – and have refused to recognize the moratorium on killing cetaceans. I can NOT feel sorry for them for choosing such a despicable “job”.

No sympathy for whalers. None. Go whales! And if only every other species would rise up and do the same. But most are incapable of the horrors that only humans are capable of. Pity, that.

I hate how people are all so high and mighty about whaling, when dickheads go out on weekends Roo shooting for sport. We turn a blind eye to what’s happening in our own backyards and happily point the finger at others. Go to an abattoir and see how your beef gets to the plate. Not pretty I can guarantee and the animals do suffer in about 50% of the cases. A life is a life, no matter how big or small and all precious and all deserving of our love and want for preservation.

  261. Whales 16, Scum Bag Whalers 6,000+ hope the whales even the score some more soon and in vast numbers.

    If the ship was operating (& you can bet it was), surely there is an extremely high chance that there was already a lot of blood in the water, either leaking out from those poor whales that had already been caught and slaughtered or from those about to be hauled into the factory workings. The whales were only eating the meat available to them. In this case it just happened to be human meat. There is no reason to blame the whales for doing what they do naturally to survive.
    I will refrain from sharing my opinion of the humans who make their living by slaughter as they have lost their lives, but do we see the vessel returning to Japan as a sign of respect for their own crew mates??? I suspect not.

  277. Oldstoat on August 5, 2014 at 3:03 pm said:

    Interesting that the last item of the post states that the killer whales where doing what came naturally. Killing for food. Are humans (animals) hunting to eat not the same? FFS we eat meat.

So why are we getting so uptight about the human animal causing extinction

    • The rest of the species on Earth can’t wait until it is the human animal’s turn to go extinct.

Yes whaling is terrible, yes humans are destroying the planet, yes the environment and all of life is connected, yes we must learn to live in harmony with nature because we are apart of it, yes animals deserve to be treated in a humane way, yes we must watch out foot prints, yes yes yes YES!! BUT YOU ARE CELEBRATING THE HORRIFIC DEATHS OF 16 PEOPLE!!! I HOPE KARMA COMES AND BITES YOU IN THE ASS! FUCK ALL OF YOU!!!

    I see no problem the whales killed far below the quota of 300 per year they are culled by themselves.
    They must be allowed to do research and testing on humans and after all why waste the meat left over.
    The sea was red with blood same as usual when Japanese boats are working so no problem, I hope they enjoyed their meal.
    Japan can morn, the world is LAUGHING.

Any loss of life is tragic but in this case I cannot bring myself to feel bad about this ‘incident ‘ If these people were out on the seas doing something honorable then I would, they were not …. The whales finally got their own back on behalf of all their slaughtered family members ! Like many have said already – KARMA !

  347. People don’t seem to grasp the fact that Karma comes to all, even to people who wish others, even whale killers, harm or even death……sorry for all of you! Karma can be a bitch!

    these people had choices to get another job, but would rather kill whales, their choice was a bad one, HURRAH FOR THE WHALES, HOPE THERE WILL BE MORE WHALES GETTING REVENGE ON THE JAPANESE BASTERDS !!

  357. Good for the whales. I am an avid fisherman and I eat fish, but I dig the whales they are our friends and very intelligent and passionate creatures. If someday the Salmon jump in my boat and eat me I respect that because I eat them but whale killers just suck!

  359. Good!! Asians have no respect for life in general in the east. They will skin animals alive and eat anything that makes them get an erection or feel slightly powerful. its a disgusting society. They will pay for it in the end though. All the asian countries have no respect for nature. They are the bottom of the barrel of society

    • Good job making a bunch of racist presumptions and statements. Model citizen right here guys.

    • My Mrs is from Mindanao, they have a far greater appreciation and knowledge(in general) of food and nature than most of us Westerners.

      She nor any of her friends go round eating anything out of the ordinary, your brash generalisations and uneducated opinion is worthless.

  360. If you’re getting happy because people died here you need to be institutionalized.

    not that i’m happy when people die, but… this is one of the more amusing and meaningful… maybe even awesome… ways to go?

  364. Paul Watson is probably sleeping very well tonight. This is a very big blow to the Japanese illegal killing of helpless whales. Bob Barker, Steve Irwin and the briget Bardot contributed to Paul Watsons cause to save the whales and the are heros to me and many others.

  365. Pure karma.

  366. Paybacks a bitch.

  367. Congrats to the Whales….
    To the people who say it is just a job and they are trying to make a living, well they had a choice… It is the same as saying drug dealers are just trying to earn a living, they are environmental rapists and Karma has been well served :D

    • Hey Warren, what’s your opinion of fishermen, livestock farmers, abbatoir workers, and basically all non-vegetarians?

      In fact, what about people who consume more than their fair share of fossil fuel (in other words, almost the entire population of the developed world who are refusing to abandon their lifestyle)? Given that the effect of taking 800 non-endangered species of whale is miniscule compared to the effect of climate change?

      Just wondering what your opinions are.

    • Unclebuck.. There have been no documented human fatalities by orcas ever recorded in the wild until now. Kind of ironic don’t you think, that the first ever recorded just so happen to be whalers. Karma!

    killer whales are smart and ruthless too. They don’t normally eat or attack human. This vicious attack on whaling crews by them must be an act of vengeance. You killed their kinds and they will response in kind as well. Good luck being a whaling crew. Can you guys kill sharks instead?

  380. Save the whales not eat them their are a lot of whales are dying ech day. Do not kill the whales at all. Help stop whale killing I am only 13 and I love whale I made a p.b.l. Project STOP WHALING

Japanese Whaling Crew Eaten Alive By Killer Whales, 16 dead

japan-whaling-boat 28 July, 2014

A Japanese whaling crew has fallen victim to a dramatic full on assault by a school of killer whales, killing no less then 16 crew members and injuring 12, has reported the Japanese Government this morning.

The crew of the MV Nisshin Maru (日新丸), Japan’s primary whaling vessel and the world’s only whaler factory ship, was forced to leave the deck temporarily as a gas leak was detected within the ship’s processing factory that resulted in the ship being temporarily disabled all while continuing to carry approximately 1,000 tons of oil.

The resulting panic lead members of the ship to jump off the boat before proper emergency procedures were taken and lifeboats had been set to sea.  The swimming crew members were then ferociously attacked by a school of killer whales, that decimated a large number of the crew within moments. “It was horrific” claims Asuka Kumara, a mechanical engineer who witnessed the gruesome  scene. “The water was red with blood, there were bodies everywhere” he recalls in tears.

Within 30 minutes of the incident, 16 crew members had disappeared into the ocean.

The incident occurred in the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary, near the South Eastern Coast of South Africa, a controversial area to be whaling as a recent international court ruling has ordered the country to ends its whale hunt in the Antarctic. The East Asian nation halted its annual Antarctic whaling mission after the U.N.’s International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruled last march the hunt violated an international moratorium on commercial whaling.

“It seems Japan just doesn’t give a damn about international law” explains environmental activist and spokesman for Greenpeace Canada, James Ben Shahali, based in Vancouver. “The waste of life is always a shame, but the whales are not to blame here, they were only doing what they are born to do: kill for food” he adds.

Some Greenpeace supporters have even celebrated the incident as a victory for the cause

Some Greenpeace supporters have even celebrated the incident as a victory for the fight against whale hunting worldwide

Japan has slaughtered over 6,000 whales since commercial whaling was made illegal by the International Whaling Commission (IWC) moratorium passed in 1986.
