Whale Wars on Discovery Channel

In my other blog, I posted about a TV show that I am recently hooked. The show is a series in Discovery Channel called the Whale Wars. If you are going to read my post, you would know what it is.

Yesterday, I got the chance to watch the rerun of Monday’s episode and it was really a heart-breaking one. The Sea Shepherd witnessed right before their eyes the killing of a whale!!! 🙁 For the past few days (in the series) they have been chasing the Nisshin Maru and have been engaging in a fierce tactics exchange with the Japanese whaling and harpoon ships. But that episode really angered the Sea Shepherd crew especially Paul Watson, the captain of the ship and the founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, in which their main goal is to stop the illegal activities of these Japanese ships.

They couldn’t believe what they saw, and I couldn’t believe it either. I was angry at the Japanese whalers too! I really was! How could they! What’s worse is that their boat has a name painted on their sides Research when in fact, it was a factory ship where they dissect the poor whale. That just made me think that nature did take her revenge against the Japanese. With the devastating earthquake, the killer tsunami and the nuclear plant meltdown, all together, I guess that’s the lesson God wants them to learn.

This is not against the Japanese in general, but only for those who kill whales. I hope they have learned their lesson already and that they will stop doing this. I am not going to miss next Monday’s episode because it is more heart-breaking. If you want to catch up, you can check Discovery Channel every Monday night at 11 pm for Whale Wars.
