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 than 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.

      Good riddance, I hope you died horrible deaths and more of you meet your ends like this, Japanese scum, treating the whole world with contempt #$%^&*(

    • Well done Whales. Sea blood red, what do you Japanese think happens when you are slaughtering the whales. If you don’t like being killed, then leave them alone. no ones fault but your own.

    • MichaelCy | July 29, 2014 at 4:56 pm |

      Sooner or later everything in life turnes back !!!

    • YAYYYYY!!!!! This made my day! Seriously, karma is a beaaachhhh and I’m glad they got a taste of their own medicine! GO WHALES!!!

    • Martin Foster | July 29, 2014 at 6:49 pm |

      Those crew members don’t own the whaling ships – Did not make the decision to whale. They were just trying to earn a living!

    • heres to the whales | July 29, 2014 at 7:23 pm |

      (way big n super stinky) Whale poop on all the naysayers who feel compassion to evil men who make a career out of killing animals!
      top 3 previous responces:
      “The whales were simply conducting scientific research!!!!!
      “could we say there is a new sushi in town nisshin maru sashimi”
      “Live by the harpoon, die by the whales”
      I couldnt have said it any better myself

    • yeah for the whales !

    • ha ha ha. love this

    • loreen maxwell | July 29, 2014 at 7:46 pm |

      Payback time assholes

    • Talk about poetic justice lol could’t have happened to a better bunch of guys ..

    • so its ok for the sea to be red with whale blood..but not these monsters blood…karma well served! I celebrate! 🙂

    • Betty Henderson | July 29, 2014 at 11:59 pm |

      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.

    • I really enjoyed reading this.
      I really hope that whales finally find a way to kill them all. I don’t wish their death, I wish them to learn what life really means.

    • just love it ,they deserve it …I wonder what is IWC is doing about the fact that the japanese are ignoring the international water laws

    • Wow. I am totally against whaling, but most of you on here celebrating the death of people are well… psychotic.

    • Finally … Rock on the Orcas!

    • I wont come out and say it blatantly but…..YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW!!

    • Lynda Adams | July 30, 2014 at 5:25 am |

      Yep Karma. Disobey law and the karmic law will deal the just punishment, starting with the golden rule. “Do unto others….

    • Magikwyrkz4u | July 30, 2014 at 7:13 am |

      Karma through and through. Bites you in the ass when you least expect it. 🙂

    • mekkymowse | July 30, 2014 at 7:27 am |

      hello… it’s NOT real. Orcas do not consume human flesh. almost as rare is a Great White actually devouring a human.

    • Excellent news. now leave them alone

      truly fantastic news, let’s hope they die of excruciating death

    • laura shipp | July 30, 2014 at 10:16 am |

      Karma.

    • Whales never forget….

    • You know what they say what goes around comes around ??

    • This is so terribly sad, yes they are out there killing animals for food and working to keep their family alive and well. So nice to have a roof over your head and food on the table when that’s all you have know all your life you bunch of children.
      KARMA?!? That logic is sick and to celebrate the deaths of a bunch of humans, it just shows how little you understand of this world. Go back to your trust funds and od please. TY!

    • I agree…KARMA baby! Sakana to neru gentlemen.

    • Poetic licence would be more accurate

    • I hope the poor whales didn’t have any nut allergies…you know just in case they ingested any whalers containing nuts.

    • At last..the worm has turned.

    • mary jo huth | July 30, 2014 at 9:03 pm |

      The only thing that would have made this a better story is if the other 12 were slaughtered. High five killer whales!!!!

    • mark speer | July 30, 2014 at 9:03 pm |

      taste like chicken……

    • What goes round comes round. We should never forget either. They are a disgusting race.

    • Japan is such an asshole! They start a war, unleash nuclear poisen killing the fishing industry and have no sense when it comes to protecting endangered whales, no sympathy for any one of them! stick that in your pipe and smoke it!

    • I’m full on for disrupting Japanese whaling practices, but Greenpeace celebrating the death of these people reminded me a pop culture version of the Westboro Baptist Church.

    • Reading these comments, im happy im not the only one, who saw this, and smiled. Yay for Karma! Those whales probally recognized the boat, as they aren’t stupid.

    • David van Coller | July 31, 2014 at 2:16 am |

      Karma

    • KARMA BABY KARMA what goes around comes around , no pity for any of them

    • The iPragmatist | July 31, 2014 at 2:33 am |

      Whales are among the most intelligent species on the earth. They feel every bit the pain when they are slaughtered that these assholes felt when they are slaughtered. Whales 1, murderers 0

    • AWESOME!!

    • Fuck You Hippy Liberals | July 31, 2014 at 4:41 am |

      What a bunch of hippy liberal faggot assholes on here……..I hope you assholes all get raped and die.

    • Karma dont see whether you own it or not but, what action you do. Pity the crew members, but you reap what you sow.

    • nicola morgans | July 31, 2014 at 9:15 am |

      they may have just been trying to make a living but if youve seen a whale being slaughtered, its horrific, what would you kill to make a living? ive no sympathy for those men. some whales are endangered. is it ok to make a living by wiping out a species. are the people who kill elephants for their tusks just trying to make a livin? and dont get me started on the tigers.

    • nicola morgans | July 31, 2014 at 9:33 am |

      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.
      Oh well. karma as you say

    • Paul Farrugia | July 31, 2014 at 11:47 am |

      Why is it that Japan never learns. International law states no wailing in the Antarctic. why do the Japanese have to be different? Maybe the whales smelt the oil of their dead. Whatever the fishermen looked like small fish to the whales so they eat them. Not the whales fault. I will not say serves them right but……

    • Astonished | July 31, 2014 at 12:59 pm |

      I bet all you bleeding hearts that put animal life ahead of human life are sitting back enjoying a nice hamburger or chicken sandwich. What about the Cows and Chickens? Very sad that 16 “PEOPLE” are dead trying to earn a living!

    • Jay Grunfeld | July 31, 2014 at 1:20 pm |

      Don’t blame the whales…..they killed those people in the name of research. Did no one see the sign the whales had? 🙂

    • Jane Simmons | July 31, 2014 at 2:10 pm |

      Karma will get you and you damn well deserve it…. I like the comment where the witness said the sea was red with blood… um hello isn’t that what you normally see when you brutally slaughter these whales

    • toadheath | July 31, 2014 at 2:41 pm |

      Sure gonna miss those Chums!

    • Get over it | July 31, 2014 at 2:58 pm |

      Martin Foster That could be stated for drunks, drug addicts, thieves & robbers of course I’d never wish that on you but remember if it was or dose happen to you thy need it to live to

    • Robbi Borowick | July 31, 2014 at 4:52 pm |

      can you spell Karma!!!

    • 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.

    • SailorKing | July 31, 2014 at 6:31 pm |

      No one should be happy for these sailors death. Second these were killer whales not whales. These killer whales hunt and kill the same whales these sailors did. So i’m not sure why everyone is saying GO WHALES their not whales.

    • Dead whales are a tragedy. Dead Japs are justice. Good point, 1945.

    • Dennis Fawcett | July 31, 2014 at 6:39 pm |

      pure karma and about time

    • Serves them right for slaughtering so many magnificent whales. KARMA came back this time and bit them on the ass! Literally!!

    • rachel coupland | July 31, 2014 at 9:45 pm |

      they got what they deserved i wonder if we will see this

      on whale wars descoverys programme about the war to stop this murder in our oceans i will not shed one tear for the murdering scumbags

      Obama voters are so easy.

    • MikeMarkCA | August 1, 2014 at 4:44 am |

      Stupidity baby, stupidity.

    • It is just very simple. Stop killing the whales and this won’t happen again.

    • 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!

    • The Whales did it for science research

    • “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.”

      exactly what they are doing to the whales!!!!!

    • Need more of this,i just wish that the whales were so big they could swallow all the whale boats ha ha that would be a victory

    • A message from the whale gods. Hopefully they took it seriously.

    • Frank Komitsky Jr | August 1, 2014 at 8:56 am |

      Sort of like reverse sushi!

    • THE TEACHING OF KARMA SHOW, THAT KILLING ANIMALS TO FEED OTHERS IS ACTUALLY GOOD KARMA. SO EVERYONE HERE UNDERSTANDS THE BUTCHER HAS A VERY HIGH POSITIVE KARMA.
      I AM GLAD THE ORCAS GOT THEIR REVENGE

    • Karma is a bitch

    • “Vengence is mine! Saith the Lord” Onya whales!

    • they’ve got what they deserved !

    • Our Creator works in mysterious ways. Some call it Karma. I call it justice.

    • Cereusmonstruosus | August 1, 2014 at 2:51 pm |

      The whales strike back! Fantastic!

    • Gloating over these tragic deaths? This is shocking! Reminds me of Palestinians celebrating after 9/11. Certainly won’t do anything to bolster our cause with the humans on this planet which are the one’s we need to convince. I guess the message of compassion towards other living beings was lost on these awful, cruel, uncompassionate “people.” Lacking empathy is why these whales die in the first place, get it?

    • I love this. Every single asshole killing dolphins, sharks, whales and killer whales should be fed to these whales, or shot. Eat fucking rice if you’re hungry

    • Do not let us forget, the Japanese are poisoning the Ocean daily with Fukushima pumping daily radioactive water in to the Ocean. Stop eating fish from the Pacific!!!

    • Animals are not stupid, guess what, they do remember….I call it sweet revenge….

    • Hail to the whales and HELL fore the butchers

    • Whales knew exactly what they were doing. Orcas are highly sentient. And they remember….

      Enough of this senseless butchering of whales to satisfy Japan’s palette. Hopefully, this incident wakes up the power’s to be in Tokyo.

    • this is exactly what happens when you mess with the beauty nature has. It is not the killer whales fault it is the japenes fault! But this not only happens to the japanese, this will happen to alot of hunters! for greedy, selfish and stupid

    • street justice bitch.

    • I hope it was so horrific for all of them and they died a slow and painful death exactly the same way they have been inflicting pain and suffering on these whales for many many years. SUFFER JAPAN You friggin deserve everything you get.

    • Just remember Japan, the whales were just doing “Scientific Research” No hard feeling’s I hope.

    • adam cooper | August 2, 2014 at 12:15 pm |

      After years of research you would think they had at least discovered why Killer Whales had been branded as such.. that there is the proof enough for the U.N to enforce a strict world wide ban on whaling. No wait they would require a spine to do as such. Pathetic U.N, *#%&ing pathetic. Can’t save a fish and your our guidance, our protection. Good luck world.

    • Couldn’t have happen to a more deserving cause. Hope the whales get the rest of them.

    • the crew of the Bob Barker must be happy. The whales knew that they were trying to help them all these years but their hands were tied. The whales took it upon themselves to continue to fight the fight to live their lives. Swim Free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Poetic justice indeed!!!!! Boo Hoo…..for the cruel, insensitive, malicious cowards that think it’s ok to kill whales but ohhhhh…whales shouldn’t kill these men!!!! No sympathy from me…..sorry!!!!! I say…good for the Whales!!!!! I say good riddance to the cowardly men who take it upon themselves to destroy all that is good in this world…and Whales are a thing a beauty!!!! HEHEHE…would have loved to been there to see it up close and personal!

    • What kind of disgusting human being celebrates the death of another? The word Nazi comes to mind, they rejoiced in the death of human beings. And I know that many who are rejoicing over these deaths eat meat. You are sick, twisted, and evil. Hell would be too good for you.

    • sucked in to every 1 of them.. if only they got the whole crew.. what a hypocrit, crying becuase the water was blood red.. its not so sad when its whale blood is it you fuckface??

      The whales fight back i am glad as all people do is kill these majestic creatures but thats o.k…the evil twats should leave the whales alone.glad they got killed.

    • May I suggest that we all write to our respective Japanese Embassies and express our views

    • I have to say u lot, with exception of one or two of u, are very shallow people. 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.

    • I just love it when nature strikes back

    • Sweet Justice for them. Don’t know how many I have seen pulled up the bloody shoots into the ships for slaughter on television. Maybe they will stop the slaughter now, huh?

    • I hope the lot of you enjoy all of the cows, pigs, chickens, turkey, and seafood you’ll devour over your lifetime. 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.

    • first of all, not all of us japanese agree with whaling. most of us dont eat whale meat! personally i hate it! ive never tried it but it smells fishy and none of my friends like it. its just a small part of japan that does enjoy eating whale meat. please dont generalize the whole of us. even we hate our own government for not having enough backbone to stand up on some serious issues.

    • FINALLY some justice!! I wish this would happen more often! It is clear to EVERYBODY around the world that the Japanese don’t care about international laws! The come up with the most lame excuses for their crimes and humanity just seems to be TO LAME to care about that again! I wish those whales would eat ALL THE F@!*%$ Japanese criminals that hide behind lame excuses! SINK THEM ALL!!

    • Brian Goddard | August 6, 2014 at 3:26 pm |

      Awesome! Good on the whales…

    • And ANYBODY that thinks that this is a horrible thing, should think again!! THIS is TRULY reason for CELEBRATION!! Those assholes just got what they deserved! The death penalty!! For committing all those killings!! Executed by the whales that are being hunted and killed by fucking weeny Japanese criminals!! JUSTICE!! FINALLY!!

    • 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.

    • Yea, there is a specific part of Japan that illegally sells whale to rich dining. They hang the whale fins like clothes on the buildings and roofs hiding them. These people are like liberians.

    • Karma may sound harsh and life lost is a shame but my first reaction was good! Whale hunting needs to end and what happened to these and men and people that do this is nothing compared to the many deaths they inflict. The mere difference is what I call specie-ism.

    • H.O.A.X nimrods. For Pete’s sake – read the other headlines.

    • fuckin rights. 16 of them is nothing compared to the 1000s of whales killed. to bad they didn’t eat more of them!!

    • james wilkins | August 6, 2014 at 11:12 pm |

      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.

    • Karma xo 🙂

    • Every dog has its day (or whale)

    • Karmas a bitch. Now they know how the whales feel every time that a whale is slaughtered.

    • Jeez it’s super fucked up the people still hunt whales. But, celebrating the deaths of these people, you should all be ashamed they left widows and children….

    • I only have one word to say about this…. KARMA!!!! 😉

    • Joe Mitchell | August 7, 2014 at 11:40 am |

      What goes around comes around!

      They can earn a living elsewhere.

    • How do you say “serves you right wankers” in Japanese

    • “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.

      Yeah….so when it’s the whales’ blood, and you’re murdering their family members, it’s ok? The whales should have eaten ALL of them.

    • ... sad for the future | August 8, 2014 at 5:25 am |

      ok.. so whaling is bad.. so the whales kill people.. and you’re happy..
      why is it just whales?..
      are you all vegetarians?
      do you not eat meat..
      i do..
      yeah…
      so why is it ok to kill the chickens and cows and all the meat we eat.. and not ok to kill the whales?
      … people used to eat elephants.. or maybe they still do..
      people eat all kinds of things..
      you’re all just gross.. celebrating when people die…
      why is it ok to eat snakes.. and crocodiles..
      i agree with whoever wrote it..
      you guys are the future westboro church…
      a bunch of sick fucks..

    • I don’t feel sorry for any one of them. Karma has a way of coming back to you. Hurting the dolphins and whales in their waters. I hope they eat 100 more of you until you get the message. Leave wildlife alone!

    • The whales were just enjoying a little sushi without rice.

    • FUck dumbass people | August 9, 2014 at 7:28 am |

      Only a few of the people who commented here actually have brains and hearts. Others are fucking dumb ass douche bags assholes motherfucking bitches that think they can blame the whole Japanese people for some small bit of stupid whalers. not all of them like and support whaling. and stop talking about WWII if you nkow nothing bitch. you don’t live in that period. and the radiation leak caused by the hit of a huge tsunami fcking dumbass! oh fucking hell how you guys can even use a pc…fuck I can’t stand all this stupidity.

    • FUck dumbass people | August 9, 2014 at 7:33 am |

      oh hey, and the NORWEGIANS or somewhere in DENMARK are even worst…hacking the whales for some fun festivals…so what are you dumb fucks going to say about that?

    • Mike Adkins | August 9, 2014 at 12:11 pm |

      Aint Karma a Bitch when it Bite’s Ya In the Ass

    • I hope they go back and kill all the whales. The whales were put in the ocean for our benefit. We should kill them all. Prayers for the sailors.

    • Antohnia Lyovtzsis | August 9, 2014 at 4:35 pm |

      This is crazy, if nature was legal they wouldn’t have been whaling for oil, because nature’s plants/cannabis produces oil, and no one would have died!

    • good you fucking jap cunts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…………. no tears lost here at all fucking cunts!

    • So there is natural justice.It’s made my day, and I just hope dozens more of the bastards who hunt whales are killed and eaten. I am worried for the whales, eating very contaminated meat.

    • Chris Hibbert | August 10, 2014 at 1:00 pm |

      This should happen more often, surely the Japenese can’t complain when they themselves were out for blood.
      I hope it happens again, and I hope they died in horror same as their prey does by the hundreds each year.

    • Maxine Hicks | August 11, 2014 at 10:40 pm |

      good what goes around comes around perfect Karma

    • To say that the whalers didn’t own the ship and were just trying to make a living : That would be like saying hitmen in a mob or gang, isn’t the leader so t’s okay for him to shoot people because he was just trying to earn a living.

    • I’m not a fan of celebrating death but in this instance………I smiled

    • Yay, whales! Duh, whalers!

    • Orcas. They got to eat too.

    • Wonder if the killer whales found them tasty? Do we taste like chicken?

    • Poetic Justice. They have to stop killing the whales. Man is just too greedy

    • Mirta in Miami | August 14, 2014 at 6:02 pm |

      An eye for an eye – I say good for the whales! Who invaded whose home in order to capture, torture and kill them? I say, one good turn deserves another. And no, I’m certainly not a sociopath, but I AM am a animal lover and an advocate of justice. They have a right to defend themselves.

    • Mirta in Miami | August 14, 2014 at 6:07 pm |

      I want to reply to “F– k dumbass people”

      My friend, the one that appears to be lacking a brain or a heart is YOU. You obviously also have very little command of the English language, except for the words that people inept at communicating resort to using.

    • Hey, Joe Strummer pinned it… he who f***s nuns will later join the church… go whales!!!!

    • 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.

    • stanley paikin | August 17, 2014 at 4:24 pm |

      You reap what you sow!.They got what they deserved .I don’t feel sorry for them at all

    • I agree

    • Ever watch the show on Animal Planet regarding this ship?. Ppl put their lives in danger trying to save whales from being slaughted. Karms is a bitch. I wish the whales would have eaten the whole crew.

    • I think the whales are puting tracking devices on the fishermen and releasing them back into society to study their day to day activity and social habits..

    • Yep,Karma is a bitch. So there’s sixteen japanese killer whale turds in the ocean. Maybe Japan should start obeying international law and quit thinking they’re above it.

    • Karma – maybe!?
      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!
      If any animal species hunted humans, we would be outraged…
      Why is it still ok to be hunting a sentient being?

    • This will end up a movie. We know Orcas are smart. Seriously, who’s to say this wasn’t a revenge attack?

    • Frances Scuteri-Moore | September 12, 2014 at 3:49 am |

      The whales were in the name of scientific experiments, ha ha ,sorry

    • Remember that when you jump into the ocean, you are now on a very large food list . Part of of the food chain as it were

    • Jackie Baldock | September 12, 2014 at 9:10 am |

      the whales getting their own back, revenge is sweet

    • After seeing them whaling on TV and the documentary ‘The Cove’… well yess definitely Karma. 16 Down, alot more to og… and don’t forget about the Norwegians and Færøers NeXT time as well…

    • LOL, Mother Nature fighting back.

    • ..GOING THE FULL CIRCLE……. for all those THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF WHALES HARPOONED BY THE JAPANESE IN THE NAME OF RESEARCH!!!….
      BRING IN THE KILLERS…. ITS TABLES TURNED…YAY!
      (my comments have no bearing on the Japanese people and my Japanese friends who live in Japan.. THEY DONT WANT THE CULL BUT THEY HAVE NO SAY … its the Government…)

    • Humanity is never above the laws of nature,Everything living eats until it gets eaten.

    • I Love it when nature bites back..

    • Those killer whales Truly deserves the Noble Prize Award for their gallant efforts in ELIMINATING the High Level Waste of the world,[the crew of the ship] May God Bless those whales!

    • ha! aint Karma a bitch when she jumps up and bites back

    • Tge whales are fighting back!! now the murderers aholes will start using atomis weapons!!

    • Good for the whales, its kill or be killed –go whales go

    • Good for the whales, its kill or be killed

    • Like chicken nuggets fer whales!

    • I agree! Poetic justice!!! Karma came around!!

    • Sheila Grover | September 19, 2014 at 9:23 am |

      Karmas a bitch!

    • To Derrek, NoMore and all you other so called pro humans, finally the “Tide” turns, man has squandered the earth’s wealth in his shortsighted vision for the future. What are you going to tell your children when there’s nothing left.

      Go Eat a “Leg of Mam”???

      Karma is alive and well, careful she doesn’t come after you!!!

    • I hate to say it but I like seeing the tables turned on these killers of whales and dolphins. They have no conscience or compassion let alone humanity. So, why should they get any either. In this case you reap what you sow.

    • What goes around comes around! The whales are not to blame.

    • The whalers met Karma and well deserved and now I wish that those in Thailand that torture and kill innocent dogs will have a date with Karma and soon.

    • fahrenheit451bookstores | November 12, 2014 at 1:28 pm |

      Mother nature doing a little species balancing and there not “people” (as if there something special) there just another animal species we happen to be a part of!

    • Karma ….yep ….bout time

    • tom mcdonald | January 3, 2015 at 4:53 am |

      Justice comes in many ways, but karma comes in but one, the Japanese planted ice killing the whales, now they are harvesting wind.

    • Um guys orcas are not whales!! They are more related to dolphins just SL you know

    • I agree with the Kharma…..good on the whales. Ps….do you know what they do to sharks…for their sharkfin soup…yeah….cut the fin off and throw them back alive…so….to one of the biggest pollution making…animal killing countries….HA!

    • Yes, what we have witnessed is sweet instant Karma at its finest, just like the hunter recently who was hunting for ivory in Africa and was trampled by an elephant. Way to go Karma 🙂

    • I like the fact that this article reads: “but the whales are not to blame here, they were only doing what they are born to do: kill for food”. This is not the case at all. Humans are ignorant to the intelligence of other living things. These whales were getting revenge and good for them. They don’t feed on human flesh

    • Pity they didn’t kill the whole damm lot of them, why has whaling not been completely banned

    • hmm i should help these killer whales they have a good start and before you know it they will have no choice to stop or suffer the same slaughter they have been causing.

    • Dave Stewart | December 24, 2015 at 8:52 pm |

      Karma is indeed a beautiful thing. Let’s hope the New round of whaling just starting Dec. 2015 are met with same fait. The disrespect for world opinion and stunning cruelty in the name of mock scientific research shines an ugly light on the Japanese. You are babaric murderers. Shame

    • poetic justice

    • Backbeach Jake | February 16, 2016 at 11:14 pm |

      And the prey fights back. No one appreciates the intelligence of whales, killer whales and dolphins. Until..

    • Eye for a Eye

    • Peter S. Mulshine | February 23, 2016 at 4:08 pm |

      I’ll post my reply after i stop LAUGHINNGGG!!!!!

    • Super..just hope they died slowly & painful…what goes around comes around!!!!

    • Whales are smart. they knew this was a killing ship and they got their chance. To say that the people killed were only doing their job is to say that the hired killer isn’t responsible only the person who hired him. Those men knew what they were doing- killing intelligent beings

    The sea is usually red with the whales blood !!!!

      this is what they call KARMA …..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Not a real news story, what a pity. I thought for a change the animals had the opportunity to fight back.

    • Martin Foster… you are a complete idiot but I am sure you knew that already. The crew members are performing an illegal act and have blood on their hands. Even when it was legal it was highly immoral. They got what they deserved.

    • rudi rodriguez | August 1, 2014 at 3:03 am |

      Karma and just in time!

  3. Dont forget the reason these people were out there in the first place , your messing with nature , it bites back

    • and it usually has a much bigger mouth than you do

    • SmartMonkey | July 30, 2014 at 11:26 am |

      Let’s just hope they won’t use it like “look, whale is a dangerous species, they have to be killed !” like we heard it way too many times…

      our FatherMother will never let whatever animal kill a human being , unless those men have killed themselves already before that killer whale attack . there are many of us walking – yet dead .
