Why is it considered alright to kill whales in such an agonising and barbaric manner?

Just imagine if we killed cows in a similar manner!

If we drove through fields chasing them, finally firing a harpoon into their sides to explode into their guts and send out barbs to anchor them and we then dragged them around the field on the end of a long line while they screamed and slowly died in agony for hours from their internal injuries.

I think there might be a public outrage.

I think people would demand that the cows were at least killed humanely.

Whales are more intelligent than cows. They have advanced social structures. They have culture. They are gentle creatures. Why would anybody feel it is acceptable to kill them in this brutal savage manner?

    Why indeed do certain countries feel the need to kill them at all?? Remove that antiquated mentality and one removes the need for barbarism. Let them all eat cake!

    1. I agree. It is a strange desire. But we humans do some very strange and cruel things. They would be much better eating cake (and ice-cream). Killing whales is the height of immorality.

    Dear God, what is to be done?
    The evil that men do lives on and on.
    When will we learn?
    When will we grow?
    When will we rise from shadow?

        No doubt that has word ‘soon’ has been banded about for millennia and whilst I appreciate our evolution is a long, drawn-out, arduous affair, surely-to-goodness soon must really now be today! Why is progress towards betterment of our world always so slow? It makes my blood boil.

      2. Progress into a less cruel humanity is so slow. I used to be optimistic but I’m becoming less so. A lot of people are just too selfish!

I'd like to hear from you...
