Japanese Whalers Documented Killing Whales by Australian Government

The Australian Customs and Fisheries Patrol vessel Oceanic Viking has released some incredibly disturbing pictures included a shot of a mother whale and her suckling calf being hauled bleeding up the slipway of the Nisshin Maru.

"We need to get back there and stop this slaughter," said Captain Paul Watson. "We are working hard to get our ship repaired, refueled, re-crewed and re-supplied. Once we return we can put a stop to this killing once again."
