New video shot by the Sea Shepherd appears to disprove Japanese claims that three of its whaling crew members were injured by rancid butter bombs. On February 11, during a five-hour clash at sea, the Institute of Cetacean Research claimed that three crew members received “acid-splash chemical injury to their eyes and face”.

Proving once more the advantage of having a film crew on-board, the Sea Shepherd released video that shows three Japanese crew members being injured by their own pepper spray. “However the wind was not in favour of this Japanese tactic and the pepper spray is blown back into the faces of the three crew, who can be clearly seen rubbing their eyes,” the Society said.

Even before this new footage, Sea Shepherd spokesman Michael Dalton said the acid projectiles were “harmless” butter bombs with a pH less than lemon juice. “If Japanese Fisheries Minister Hirotaka Akamatsu has any sense of honor and dignity he will apologize for the lies that the Institute of Cetacean Research have made in accusing Sea Shepherd of injuring three Japanese whalers on February 11th,” said Paul Watson.
