Killer whales declare war on Japan.

It seems while carrying out whaling operations in the southern ocean. The crew on-board the Mv Nisshin Maru whaling vessel detected a gas leak and jumped overboard into the water before deploying the lifeboats.
A pod of killer whales probably maybe ones the ship were after, seized the chance and ate 16 crew members. Sympathies to the families and all that but it's more than likely the whales knew exactly what was happening with that vessel and that humans were on-board and seized their chance for retribution.

The trouble is that this vessel will now be turning whales that get away into man killers.

Not read the article yet, but of its true it would be the first time killer whales attacked a human in the wild.

The story seems kind of fishy perhaps what really happened was leaking gas poisoned and killed the 16 crew, and the Japanese are trying to cover it up by blaming it on the whales.

If it is true, then this is the first reported case of wild killer whales targeting and eating humans.

Edit: Fair play, OP ha ha.

This is why we must all support the Japanese in their noble endeavour to eradicate a serious threat to humanity.

We see again the folly of sending the Irish fleet to Rockall when it should be patrolling the Southern Ocean. The Daily News informs us this was all a plot to stir up war between Ireland and Scotland to tie up our naval resources.

It's them or us. I hear whale makes nice sushi too.
