Whale says THANKS!

Postby Horus » Thu Jan 14, 2010 2:19 pm

A recent front page story of the San Francisco Chronicle tells about a female humpback whale who had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat.

She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, her tail, her torso, and a line tugging in her mouth.

A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallon Islands (outside the Golden Gate ) and radioed an environmental group for help.

Image


Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her. They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her. When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles.

Image

She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around ... she was thanking them.

Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth said her eyes were following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

Yeah, i heard of this report, would have been a mind blowing experience. I read another report recently where some animal behaviourists have now concluded that cetaceans especially dolphins have a higher cognitive ability than chimps, placing them 2nd on the all time best thinker list right behind...us.
If we cut up beasts simply because they cannot prevent us and because we are backing our own side in the struggle for existence, it is only logical to cut up imbeciles, criminals, enemies, or capitalists for the same reasons.
--C. S. Lewis (novelist and essayist)

"What I think about vivisection is that if people admit that they have the right to take or endanger the life of living beings for the benefit of many, there will be no limit to their cruelty."
--Leo Tolstoy, author

we must be like gods to whales, we come from their sky, we can either help them(rarely) or torture and kill them.

sounds religious to me.
