Whale Watchers Witness Whalers Whale a Whale
I couldn't make this up if I tried.
A group of tourists was inadvertently introduced to Norwegian hunting
practices during a whale-watching trip in the far north of the country.
As they were admiring one of the animals, a Norwegian whaling boat came
along and harpooned it.
Can you imagine? That would be like taking your kids to the forest to see a Deer, and while admiring the little bambi it gets mowed down by a hunter using a mini-gun.
Too funny. My favorite quote in the story was from a Dutch tourist.
"This really wasn't what we came to see."
No Shit Sherlock.
