June 5th marks the return of the controversial series Whale Wars on Discovery Channel’s Animal Planet Network. As we chronicled a bit this year, Paul Watson and his crew faced ever greater challenges in hunting down and disrupting the Japanese whaling fleet. In the end, however, their efforts were rewarded with Japan reaching none of its quotas for the season.
We’ve got a promo clip of Season 2 available below. The network has also released some raw footage deemed too graphic for those under 18 — though we encourage anyone who has never witnessed what a whale hunt to watch. It definitely will give you some perspective on what Sea Shepherd is attempting to curtail. That clip runs below the fold. Click here to learn more about Whale Wars Season Two.
