* This is one of the reasons why I don't like tourism in Hawai'i: It creates alot of damage to people, places, and things like this humpback whale calf:



A humpback whale calf with wounds that appeared to have been caused by the propeller of a small boat traveling at high speed was spotted Monday off Maui.

Oftentimes when the Western World touches the Indigenous World they end up tainting the Indigenous World even its people meaning many Indigenous People slowly become like their colonizers. Many Asians too. They slowly become like their colonizers. That is, Money Hungry Capitalistic Leeches (or "MHCLs") who suck the Earth for everything that it has for a dollar :P

the cuts seem to deep and too perfect to be from a propeller...?

Propellers move rather quickly, and since they work by pulling water thru them as it moves along, it more or less pulls the creature through at a fairly regular rate, hence the even segmenting of the cuts. Make no mistake, this is most certainly from a propeller.

Shaming people to their culture divides them, most importantly from themselves. Once you feel you have nothing, its easy to tell/sell you anything.
