So rupertw if you go out in to the wilderness and get attacked by a lion.do we kill a few lions ,if a rino damages your lovely rangerover do we kill them as well,or even the elephants.we do not own the water or the right to it..just keep out of their way as best as possible and when you cant stay out of their way you know the risks.take it on the chin thats sailing .... and yes i have /do sail the areaWell maybe, maybe not. A thread 18 months ago got tangled up in the motivation of the rogue orcas. Whether is premeditated revenge or more likely just like cats scratching carpet in play doesn’t change the problem or speedy solution.
I guess you won't be renewing your membership to the WWF then?Well maybe, maybe not. A thread 18 months ago got tangled up in the motivation of the rogue orcas. Whether is premeditated revenge or more likely just like cats scratching carpet in play doesn’t change the problem or speedy solution.
They are animals not children.I’m a complete supporter of wildlife but not of letting tigers or elephants going rogue or orcas. We can only share the planet with respect, tolerance and firm control when necessary.
Today's Correia da manha reports a yachy beig towed into Sesimbra yesterday with its rudder damaged by Orcas..I’ve just heard on the local grapevine that there have been a few (3?) more attacks in the last few days and that one boat - ‘attacked’ off Faro is being lifted here (Lagos, Portugal) today. No further info I’m afraid.
I am not in favoUr of your observation. I have lived and sailed on the tunny and hence orca route for forty years and have ridiculed the idea of shooting them with a rifle but like most thinking people will not vote in favour nor against the idea of drastic action (and for me killing is about as drastic as can be) without being in possession of a lot more information.Isn't it strange that people who don't live and sail in the affected regions are generally against action being taken against the rogue orcas and people whose boats, and lives possibly, are being threatened, generally are in favor of some sort of action being taken.
Just an observation.
Not a lot I’m afraid and I’ve left the area now but friends tell me that the boat concerned was a Bavaria and that it was lifted, checked and re-launched so presumably, it was undamaged. Same friends told me that the boat was turned around by pressure on the aft/rudder area and that the Orca rubbed themselves against the boat. That’s all I have I’m afraid.Any info yet ?
