This Graphic Footage of a Japanese Whale Hunt is Hard to Watch

Watch a whale hunt and witness the graphic act of harpooning a minke whale in open waters.

In this whale hunt video, whale rights advocates capture a whale killing.

This is the rare and graphic footage they filmed while circling the whaling boat in a helicopter.

According to the Youtube users, the boat in the video belong to a Japanese whaling crew. The minke whale in this video was the target in a typical whale hunting expedition.

Did you see how the hunters simply harpooned the whale and slowly dragged it to their boat? This act produced a lot of blood and it’s likely the whale didn’t die right away.

This whale hunt video originally appeared in an episode of Whale Wars. Contact your local whale rights advocate and learn more about whale hunts.
