Sea Shepherd to ‘Surprise’ Japanese Whaling Fleet with New Vessel — quoting a certain mystery woman. ;-)

It’s good to know that the dedication of Sea Shepherd activists is helping to finally bring an end to the horrors of Japan’s whaling in the Southern Ocean. As it stands, Japan is losing millions of dollars every season as a result of Sea Shepherd intervention and for the last two years has been forced to return to Japan with a small fraction of the intended kill quotas. This interference is especially important considering that Japan’s government has been unable to sell most of the whale meat domestically. In fact, the funding for future whaling may be in jeopardy due to the rampant corruption that took millions of tax dollars intended to help victims of the tsunami disaster and instead used that money to fund more whaling in Antarctica — which has angered the public in Japan and prompted official investigation into government spending on such wasteful projects.
