The big shame


I spend the weekend with a pair of girls from the Faroe Islands and we ended up talking about the whale killings and this "article" http://www.eface.in/denmark-is-a-big-shame-to-whole-world/

It basically gets everything wrong. They don't use hooks, but knifes and axes. It looks bloody, but that's because it's in the sea.

I'm neither for or against it, but I know it will turn into a massive discussion in the comments, so try to keep it civil.

If everything Faroe says in this comic is true then I don't think it's a problem at all.

Meanwhile:
California: "What the fuck, Louisiana?!"
Louisiana: "What?"
California: "I just heard that you hunt alligators! Trying to feel all tough and stuff?!"
Louisiana: "Wha- No! I have a legal hunting season and permits for those things! If I didn't hunt them, there'd be overpopulation, and they'd end up in levees and other waterways!"

I don't like the killing of whales... But I gotta say.
Faroe does have a very good point. His treatment of the whales is waaaay better than how eg. USA treats cattle. Plus, factory farming in UK too.
I guess... just do what is best for you, your country and the whales. At the same time. All of them.

Hunting whales is one of the least cruel methods of getting meat. Each death gives you a LOT of calories and protein, vs, say, chickens. About 40:1.
