Three anti-whaling activists have been injured during a clash at sea with Japanese whalers, some 300 miles north of Mawson Peninsula off the coast of Antarctica.
A group of infamously aggressive whale-hunting opponents say that they have tracked down and photographed hunters participating in Japan’s annual Antarctic whale hunt using an unpiloted drone aircraft to spot their ship.
Japanese whaling authorities said on Friday that they were suing the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society group to try and stop it from interfering in the annual whale hunt.
Japan plans to send out its whaling fleet again this year, even though they were turned back by the Sea Shepherd conservation group earlier this year.
