Worse things have happened... I am still unsure of WHY he's being investigated. Whales are terrorized everyday by 'sight-seeing' boats all the time.
I have swam with humpbacks during their migrations past Puerto Rico, where I used to live... should I be under investigation too? Whales WILL approach you out of curiosity, so I don't discount his story completely.
Maybe I missed something... why is he under investigation?
