The Andy Gil, a trimaran owned by the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, had its bow cut off by a Japanese whaling vessel off the shores of Antarctica. Details of the incident are in our Outposts blog. A crew from Animal Planet, which was filming for its "Whale Wars" series, caught the incident on film.
