Killing the Ocean

Recently, there was murder that took place on the high seas. The culprits fired two harpoons into their victim and tried to cover the body with a large tarpaulin… a dead corpse of a minke whale.

On January 15, 2017, Yahoo News cover a story describing the slaughtering of minke whale by Japanese fishing ships. It was a true tragedy. By the time Sea Shepherd’s Southern Ocean patrol ship reached the illegal act, it was too late. I absolutely despise the acts of the Japanese fisherman terminating the whale’s population one by one. These magnificent creatures’ numbers have been dwindling since the 1900’s and the Japanese have only made the situation worse.
