if a whale approaches you out of curiosity then you got nothing to fear, but if you approach a whale, you don't know what mood it is in and what you getting your self in too.

Normally whales are calm and friendly but these surfers were surrounding the animal and getting WAY too close. You can see the moment it gets too much for the young whale. Luckily even a distressed whale is still a gentle giant, this could have gotten nasty.

that particular whale should have been shot from a helicopter after acting that aggressively towards humans. theres clearly something very wrong with it. might be rabies or something. also it would serve as an example to other whales not to viciously attack innocent beach goers. women and children among them. some of them from disenfranchised minority communities.

From an educated point of view the reason the whale became restless and cleared off was because of the way the surfers surrounded it. Similar to what predators do in the wild they circle their prey, or scavengers surrounding a wounded animal. They gave the whale no room to move off if it wanted thus the quick and hasty exit.

Lashing out: getting pissed and attacking, I didn't see that whale attack anyone. That whale was getting surrounded by people and felt threatened, and was kinda just saying, (stahp!) not attacking trying to hurt anyone. Leave it alone! I'm so proud to be adding to the hate comments!!

Actually the whale seems to be very tolerant, too tolerant in my opinion. This is why we can't have or do anything nice, because of assholes like this. What would possess you to approach an animal of this magnitude? A wild one at that. It's called respect, they have none. Next wild animal they do like this won't be so forgiving, goes to show just how highly intelligent these animals are. Proof hunting them should be banned, the way they are tortured then killed is sadistic and evil.

See this is why we have places like SeaWorld. Where you can safely have your up close and personal interactions with animals like this safely. It is one thing if a wild animal initiates the interaction. But do NOT force yourself onto them. This is not a trained animal. SeaWorld's animals are trained for human contact. This is something people really seem to miss on this issue.

This whale got scared or stressed and lashed out as a warning to leave him alone. He could have knocked the surfer out easily but he didn't.

0:28 this is a perfect example WHY it's illegal most of the time to get close to wild animals. Someone already mentioned how they're surrounding the whale like an Orca pod. "But the whale know's the difference! They're not stupid!" No their not. And that's the problem they remember. Have you ever watched a Orcas hunt a large animal? Google Killer Whales hunting Baby Whales. It takes HOURS! If that whale was a female she may have battled Orcas recently for her calf. She HAS to remember because she has to remember what works and what doesn't. Now think of soldiers that were in battle. Like the knife scene from Saving Private Ryan. Wouldn't being put in a similar situation even though He KNOWS it's not the same situation make him nervous? YES!! Same with the Whale. The surfers are taking predatory spots around it. It can't help but trigger anxiety. And the problem with that is it might try and give you the benefit of the doubt. Or it might take it handy dandy HumanSwatter of a tail and squash you. The Ocean .... where you don't need Bounty to mop up a mess.

Francis Barca

This is one of the reasons for laws and regulations regarding human behavior in the natural habitat of these beautiful creatures and others. They are not pets. I would imagine the whale might have felt it was in danger being surrounded like that. I see from some of the comments here there are kids who still don't understand it. Sadly if a human is hurt or worse by their own fault for not observing the rules and not using common sense the victim is usually the innocent animal who acts on instinct in self defense or thinks the moron is easy prey for dinner.

There is an incident of a WILD humpback whale actually striking a diver with her tail because she got irritated with him being so close to her. The clip was shown on Animal Planet's Untamed & Uncut. You can probably even find it here on YouTube. Your claim is an ignorant one, and completely false. Whales can become aggressive if they feel threatened, regardless of whether or not they are in captivity. It does not alter their behavior. They are still wild animals.

+Marielin Munroe it's a 60 foot animal, if you can touch a cat or a dog or swim with dolphins a human can't hurt a whale by touching it. It's a big ocean, the whale could have swam anywhere but chose to swim close to a human which means it's not really bothered by it.
Marielin Munroe
Marielin Munroe - 3 years ago
That's not the point. The point is that the surfers failed to respect the laws surrounding the whale. Not to mention just respecting the animals itself. Just because it's close to you isn't an invitation to get closer to it or to try and touch it.

So why do we have laws for us humans and not against other predators that kill these whales for sport and food? Don't we have the right to eat, just like the killer whale does? Logically, none of these animal right laws make any sense. Young skulls full of mush and brainwashed.

Humans are blessed with a brain that allow us to think and chose for ourselves. We also have the ability to tell what is good and what is bad, what is wrong and what is right.
Animals don't have that, and they're simply following their instinct.

You wanna know why there are law that protects animals from us humans ?!

Animals hunt kill for survival and protection, and they can't drive each other to extinction. Unlike most humans today, who hunts for fun/pleasure/trophy, not to mention that human can easily cause the extinction of species in the animal Kingdom. even the species who their existence is a necessity will be driven to extinction by humans, and then nature will be fucked. and we will be fucked as well.

These laws can only be enforced on humans because we have souls and have the capability of respecting one another. Animals by definition, do not have rights.

That's acting like a predator, the whale would at least injure you from a lash from the tale.

Well to be fair this particular species were heavily targeted by commercial whaling. They were the preferred species hence why they got the name "right whale" because they were slow swimmers, easy to catch up to with longboats, and when killed they would float. They also have thick blubber and were sought after because blubber used to be used for a lot of products in those days. Right whales also have very long life spans. The average age they can reach is around 90 years. Some have been found to be close to 120 years.

I don't need to re-read it.....you were clear in stating your belief that had this whale lashed-out, the surfers would have been hit.  That's incorrect: the great baleen whales are not "strike violence" animals.  They haven't evolved that behavior because they have no need for it: they're harvesters of krill, not predators of large sea creatures and their size leaves them susceptible to attack by non-human predators - primarily a pod of orca - only at their tails.  If enough meat can be bitten out of the flukes, the orca can drown the whale.  The pod will encircle the whale to keep it confused while a couple members bite the tail. So the great baleen whales know that when surrounded, they need to thrash their tails, which creates enough turbulence that even orca can be pushed back by it. No hit involved.  These surfers are prompting that behavior by surrounding the animal. Had this been a sperm whale, I'd totally agree with you.  They're toothed predators and are physically confrontational....even to the extent that they've literally sunk ships on purpose.

+emosh73 First of all, generalizing a group of people isn't a very high I.Q. thing to do in and of itself. Surfers come from all walks of life: doctors, teachers, and even lawyers (ok, bad example [j/k]). Many surfers are smart enough to win hundreds of thousands of dollars at surf competitions. So let's not stoop to a low level and promote stereotypes.

Secondly, admiring a magnificent creature isn't what I'd consider to be stupid. I'd consider it an honor. Getting that close is a risk, that's for certain. Surfing is also a risk. Hopefully the risks we take are worth the rewards. At the risk of generalizing, most surfers love the ocean and love whales. They knew what they were going up against. And many would do it again.

What about the whale? It was in no danger, it can handle us.

In terms of the usual size of Southern Right Whales that one was tiny - and therefore, definitely only a youngster. Harassing children is very bad form (even if they are whale-sized children). They should definitely have left it alone, and especially not surrounded it like that. Being in the water with these animals isn't a problem in and of itself (most whales and dolphins will either ignore people in their environment, or show curiosity and maybe approach, but attacks are very, very rare things - depending on the dolphin or whale species; some have no recorded attacks at all). The laws are there to keep people, but most especially the animals, safe, and prevent their natural behaviours from being interfered with.

Also, whether the animal was lashing out, or simply making an effort to move off, it would definitely have been stressed out being surrounded in that way. As other commenters have pointed out, some killer whale ecotypes hunt these whales - and even without the predatory association, no animal is comfortable with being surrounded by an unknown quantity.

Think the madia( intentional) should report how stupid thease dumb fucks are esp the parents! an prosecute them! You can bet if i got in there face on a sat night ! they'd lash out an then get stomped! after which they would run to the cops for help! sad fuckers shouldnt be allowed on boards!

The only time you see them move quickly is when they're trying to impress other whales, or warning something that's making them uncomfortable. By themselves they're graceful, slow and paced, because they need to conserve energy. Tail thrashing is a warning behavior.

I love to admire animals in their natural habitat but I mean c'mon it doesn't take a genius to realize that you need to give the animal some space. It would be no different if a strange person was in your personal space, way to close, and wouldnt leave you alone and you didn't know what they were going to do next wether they were a threat or not . Of course you're naturally going to react and try and get away at all cost. It's a wild animal it doesn't know that you're not a threat all it knows is you're a threat and shouldn't be that close.

Anyways people do this kind of thing all the time but to me, through the surfer's body language, it seems more like they were a bit apprehensive, in the least. Their hearts were likely beating faster & their movements were a bit choppy, so the whale just understood that & said "you guys are making me uncomfortable" with that tail flick.
shewolf51
shewolf51 - 5 years ago
You're likely right. The way the surfers had positioned themselves around the whale seemed strikingly similar to the way a pod of Orcas would. Which doesn't help considering Orcas actually do hunt Southern Right Whales.
 What they did was incredibly stupid since one serious smack from that tail could potentially kill any one of them.

Why are people even mentioning a Bowhead Whale?
The original statement was about a the Southern Right whale but because LOMan (the dick who made that statement) couldn't back it up, so he has put a completely different species (from a very dubious Wikipedia entry as the source to his claim).
Then he says Intuits (in Australia or southern water ??? )and whalers which are also bullshit statements(whaling was banned her a hundred years ago)..3 for 3 in his OP and then an extremely dubious claim at best for his second post trying to prove he's right.
Every single species of Whale's life expectancy is about the same as humans, they are mammals after all (and Elephants also a large mammal also lives about the same length of time as a human) ..
So this loman idiot seems to think that one species out of every single species of whale including their very close cousins who live and eat the same food in the same waters (the Humpback whale) Bow head whales live over twice as long?? Bullshit.
Ed Kelly

You're wrong on every statement you made in your OP. but still wouldn't admit it. You're a fucking idiot.

+Kimmy Kakes 'Just evolution. One species will generally be an exception to the rule and outlive its 'cousins' Human beings have lived for 120 years whereas the other great apes average a lifespan of 50 years. You could argue that it is only medicine that has allowed this but that too is a part of evolution where our brains grew to the point where we could ponder and deduce such miracles of medicine and technology to allow this.


There are also other examples of a species living longer than others of its kind such as giant tortoises, termites (albeit the queen and not the worker drones) or parrots in general who tend to love longer than other species of bird (although there are a few exceptions to this one as well such as the flamingo who lived to be about 85 or so). Evolution dictates longevity as well as many other things. The Bowhead whale is thought to live so long due to living in a very cold climate and, consequently, having an extremely slow metabolism.

+Kimmy Kakes Try reading that again. In fact here is another way of saying the same thing with a little more info for you in order to digest the information easier:


A Bowhead Whale can live to around 200 years old. The average age of a whale (that means across all other species) can be compared to that of a human at around 80 years old. 


That is to say that most whales live around 80 or so years and so do human beings and that Bowhead whales are an exception to that and the oldest one, that we know of, is recorded at approximately 200 years. If you don't believe me then give it a google. Why would you think that I meant that humans live to be 200? Anyway, I hope that clears that up for you.

+Anonymous Not true. As stated in the topic it is an offence to swim that close to a whale and you need special permissions to do so. I don't know what law they could have thrown at them but they could have had them fined if they wanted to.
Don't be so naive about the 'Land of Opportunity', law still governs all of us whether it be America or Australia.

Too bad the whale didn't take a couple of them out with his tail. Jerks disturbing an endangered animal have no sense. I don't know about whales but I know in Florida they have laws against jerks molesting the Manatees. People are always trying to mess with wild animals. Just let them alone. They aren't here for your stupid amusement.

One is illegal, the other isn't. You should look into it. Also, might wanna check your attitude why you're at it too.

I'm not saying all those bastards in the media are any better. Animals especially endangered animals like this aren't meant to be played with.

+Chilllaxxinn You can get a ticket.  This is America, you're free to swim or go pretty much every where.  They can't tell you how close you can get to an animal.

I'm thinking a ticket/ fine would be appropriate but not arrested.  There wasn't any victim.

+saintearth It's illegal to swim that close to a whale. Even people at the beach where calling them back.

What do you think they did to deserve being arrested?
