Greenland Begins Whale Hunt, Illegally - Mother Jones

This really just pisses me the hell off. Greenland hasn't hunted whales for 60 years, and now they suddenly need to again? Bullshit.

I'm even more pissed off that the whales that travel there will potentially be the whales I see when I go whale watching at home. What if they kill Salt?!?! I would honestly cry.

So, at the complete disaster of IWC this year (more), Greenland was granted 27 humpback whales. But if that's not enough, they've begun the hunt early - illegally. The kills were granted for aboriginal hunts only, but whale meat has been finding its way into the mainstream market. Surprise surprise.

Extremely disappointing.
