16 Japanese Whalers eaten alive by Orcas? Update: Too good to be true, story reported to be a hoax... (yes, I know that is shocking)

The crew of the MV Nisshin Maru (日新丸), Japan’s primary whaling vessel and the world’s only whaler factory ship, was forced to leave the deck temporarily as a gas leak was detected within the ship’s processing factory that resulted in the ship being temporarily disabled all while continuing to carry approximately 1,000 tons of oil. 
The resulting panic lead members of the ship to jump off the boat before proper emergency procedures were taken and lifeboats had been set to sea. The swimming crew members were then ferociously attacked by a school of killer whales, that decimated a large number of the crew within moments. “It was horrific” claims Asuka Kumara, a mechanical engineer who witnessed the gruesome scene. “The water was red with blood, there were bodies everywhere” he recalls in tears.

Tastes like sashimi!


  1. If ten went into the water and one was killed, then that could accurately be said to be decimation.

    1. Who knows, maybe they couldn't stop with just one.

    2. Maybe it is like Chinese food and you feel hungry again shortly after you eat (okay I denounce myself for that one).

  2. Hmm, I though I heard or read somewhere orcas' rep was way overdone.
