    I have only recently begun to watch this regularly on Animal Planet, but I have a mixture of views of the Sea Shepherd crews and their passion to stop whaling and the tactics they use to this end. As well, some poll options are about the Japanese, or other, whalers, and their determination to continue and their counter-operations. Check all statements you agree with. SS = Sea Shepherd organization and crews.

    SS violates international rules of the road and commits de facto piracy.

    Interesting that usually the side being presented is the one a person will agree with - when they have no dog in that particular fight.

    Remember the movie "THE BLUE MAX" ?? It had me pulling for the Germans until I realized that fact.

    In this instance however, I have never felt any compulsion to cheer the SS on to victory!

    Two Observations:
    1. Seems like they could use their time in resources saving and helping a much more important animal, namely humanity.
    2. These folks trying to save a whale are a bunch of nut jobs.
