VIDEO: It's Pirates vs. Pirates in Whale Wars

Only one group of brave people stand between 750-ton-whale-killing machines and their prey — and those are the brave people of the Sea Shepherd in Animal Planet's newest series, Whale Wars. These guys and gals risk their lives to stop illegal whalers by ramming ships, boarding the other vessels and even throwing rotten butter "bombs" on the whalers' decks. They may be using "non-violent" means, but that doesn't stop the other party from using real gunfire to keep them away. Get the scoop on what life on the Sea Shepherd ship is like and what celebrity names back the cause. Watch the video after the jump!
