SHOT THRU THE HEART AND WHALERS TO BLAME
Okay, so Paul Watson, captain of the anti-whaling boat, Steve Irwin, (yes, the Crocodile Hunter) wasn’t exactly shot in the heart, but he could have been if he hadn’t been wearing a Kevlar vest. According to a report recently published on SeaShepherd.com, Captain Watson and his crew came under fire while confronting the Japanese whaling vessel, Nisshin Maru, within the waters of the Australian Territorial Zone near Antarctica. The shot was fired by a presently unknown gunman as Japanese Coast Guard members hurled flash bang grenades onto the deck of Steve Irwin.
