Sea Shepherd anti-whaling boat damaged by wave

Sea Shepherd anti-whaling boat damaged by wave

A conservationist group's boat that was chasing a Japanese whaling vessel off Antarctica has been damaged by a giant wave.
The incident is a major setback for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, which is chasing the whaling fleet in the hopes of interrupting Japan's annual hunt.
Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson told The Associated Press on Thursday that a rogue wave cracked the hull of its scout vessel Brigitte Bardot. Watson's boat, the Steve Irwin, was making its way through rough seas to help the stricken ship on Thursday.
Watson says none of the crew on the Brigitte Bardot are hurt and the boat is in no danger of sinking.
