Confrontation with a Sealing Vessel

1100 Hours AST

The sealing vessel Gulf Clipper attempted to back into the Farley Mowat. A man in the wheelhouse pointed a high powered rifle with a scope out the bridge window and aimed it at the bridge of the Farley Mowat. He then turned the rifle and sighted it on crewmember John Batchelor, who was standing on the bow of the Farley Mowat.

Captain Paul Watson contacted the Ice Breaker Amundsen to request that they ask the Mounted Police officers onboard to warn the Captain of the Gulf Clipper to desist in pointing a rifle at Sea Shepherd crewmembers. The Mounties refused to do so.
