BLASTING WHALES WITH FIRE HOSES?!

I still think they should back off and let the whales do their thing. We’ve been doing OUR thing for long enough.

    I have to agree Gary…. all we’re doing is further stressing the poor things out.
    Sometimes we just don’t know when to leave well enough alone…….

    Hi Gary,
    Just saw (online) in the Times that the whales have made it to Pittsburg, so they definitely are getting closer to where they need to be! Keeping in mind that they “have been given the weekend off”, (with the exception of antibiotics & another biopsy) they’ve pretty much done this on their own, I have to again question the logic of the “rescuers.” The article states “Greg Hurner, a senior advisor with the California Department of Fish and Game, said herding attempts will resume Tuesday.” They plan to once again use loud noises & hoses on them. Do you think they haven’t noticed that the whales have progressed farther since they’ve been left on their own?? Sitting here in Antioch just shaking my head in disbelief…….
