VIDEO: Beware, Capt. Ahab

It doesn’t boast the drama of Herman Melville’s classic Moby-Dick, but a charging sperm whale got the attention of a Chilean fishing-boat crew recently.

A short video shot by a crewmember shows the vessel being rammed and ominously circled by several sperm whales off Lebu, Chile.

The whales reportedly swam off, leaving the fishermen with a wild tale and a video to prove it.
