According to the publication, the crew allowed tourists to touch the animal. Experts on the protection of the environment declare that the organizers of the tour thus violated Federal law. The law prohibits approaching marine mammals closer than 92 metres. The animal could snap the tail to hit or kill the passenger.
“I am, to put it mildly, shocked. This, of course, the fault of the organizers. The company should be aware that such a violation it can be fined up to 25 thousand dollars or lose the ship”, – commented on the incident fellow, Centre of Biology Steve Jones.
