Mexico | Sea Shepherd group’s boats attacked by poachers while patrolling vaquita refuge

More than 35 skiffs attacked a vessel belonging to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, the international maritime wildlife conservation organization, in the upper Gulf of California on Wednesday, hurling “lead weights, dead fish, and even Tabasco sauce” at the ship.

According to Sea Shepherd, poachers aboard the skiffs also threatened the organization’s M/V Farley Mowat with Molotov cocktails, sprayed gasoline at the ship and poured it in the water around the vessel.
