Sperm Whale Rescue Attempt Gone Wrong


I don’t understand this story.  What caused the whale to panic?  Did the whale feel threatened?

Here is a link to video footage of a sperm whale panicking and overturning a Japanese fishing boat.  It is reported that three men were trying to rescue the whale after it strayed into a bay and one man drowned when his boat was capsized by the whale.  I found this link at Drudge’s website.  (Note:  Dead link.)
