OTTAWA (Reuters) - It wasn't until the U.S. cruise ship had pulled into port in Atlantic Canada that those on board made a gruesome discovery -- the body of a large whale was impaled on the vessel's bow.
"This is the first ship strike (on a whale) that I'm aware of in the past year," said Williams.
That's horrible, but it's the first time that I've ever heard of anything like that happening. I could be wrong, though.
I still love cruising, and animals.

What's the deal? I posted a very brief, fully attributed (Reuters) story about a whle being hit by a cruise ship. That post has now been edited to "comply with copywrite laws." EXPLAIN, to me how posting such a story and completely crediting the source, is a violation of copywrite law.
The story was written by a Reuters writer and owned by Reuters News Service and they retain the copyright to that material. Newspapers and websites pay Reuters a fee to run their stories. Cruisemates does not subscribe to Reuters, Associated Press, etc. and posting one of their articles on our site is a violation of copyright law.
We copyright our articles. If another website took one of Dan's articles and put it on their site we wouldn't like it and could take legal action so we won't do the same thing to them. It is against the law and if an entity like Reuters or AP really wanted to be nasty they could sue us for copyright infringement.
