This is beyond horrible and insane, and world – we “humans”, allow it to happens year, after year ... Sometimes, I think that the only helpful solution for the Earth is than humankind just disappear at all... and, maybe, in century or so begin new, better civilization.

This whole situation makes me sick to my stomach. I've emailed a friend in Japan to try and understand what the thinking there is that anything like this scenario would possibly be okay. Haven't heard back yet, because I'd like to see just what, exactly, it might take to make it STOP!

WHY do these "humans" commit such horror and abuse and death for thse gentle creatures. This practice should be banned. If I could I would do this but governmnet and enforcement should get nvolved and stop it now.

Its time the world stood up to all these barbaric acts of cruelty against all the creatures of the land and sea from the clubbing of the seals to the poaching and unnecessary killing of the wildlife and the bloodsports the world desperately needs laws for all animals and their welfare It is just showing up the humans for what they are cruel and greedy
