Man Told He Is Guilty Of Felony For Videotaping Whale

• Photography Is Not a Crime

Hans Welch responded to a call for volunteers from the Marine Mammal Conservancy where they needed help with pilot whales that had been stranded off the Florida Keys.

At one point last Saturday morning, the Miami resident was in the water holding the pectoral fin of a stranded whale.

It was obviously a very unique experience, so he pulled out his waterproof camera and began recording.
