Saving whales from deadly ship collisions

July 20, 2008

This story shows that even wildlife can be rubberneckers:

Marine scientists say several right whales are struck and killed each year by commercial ships passing through their feeding grounds.

But when researchers blasted warning noises from ships to scare the whales away, the lumbering giants instead swam to the surface to see what was going on — a response that put them in greater danger. Scientists found the animals are either so used to loud sounds, or so curious about them, that the noises apparently do the opposite of warning them. 

If only whales were as smart as dolphins, they wouldn’t keep getting fucked LOL!!

Whales have been getting fucked by humans for hundreds of years.
