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.

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.

If whales are intelligent why do the keep swimming in the same places every year? The people in the Faroe Islands and Iceland just wait for the whales to show. They have been doing it for 1000 years. It is the same with the dolphins in Japan, they swim into the same cove evey year as if they are waiting to be slaughtered. The oceans cover 70% of the earth's surface, just go somehere else.

I live in an area with lots of farms, especially around the area my school is at. My school is amongst a bunch of fields for cows that are used for meat. I can't say all about it because I don't live on one, but they seem to be treated fairly well. They have a ton of space and are normally just out there in the fields grazing. (I am not trying to say that most farms are like this. Those mass produced farms are really messed up and the conditions for the animals are horrible.)

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.

Most people who don't rely on whale meat to live just don't get it.
