Hunting Sperm Whale with the BBC and Hand-Made Boats and Harpoons

Indonesian fishermen know about hunting sperm whale, and all they need is a harpoon and a boat.

Hunting sperm whale is no small feat, but the whalers in this video make it look pretty easy.

Watch this clip featuring an Indonesian fisherman who knows the best way to hunt these whales.

Can you believe that battle lasted eight hours? It just goes to show whales are stronger than most people think.

It’s nice to see none of the whale was wasted, and that these hunters only take about six per year.

Now that you’ve seen how the Indonesians do it, you understand there’s more to whaling than meets the eye. Consider this video next time you want to weigh in on this controversial topic.
