Svolvær, Lofoten Islands, Norway - A newly released anonymous communique has appeared claiming responsibility for the sinking of a Norwegian whaling ship on the night of August 30th. The action was "dedicated to the memory of the Yangtze river dolphin," which until very recently scientists believed was first Cetacean species to have been driven extinct by humans. According to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, the 89 foot Willassen Senior is the fifth Norwegian whaling vessel to come under attack since 1992.
