Dwindling support

However, next week WSPA and Norwegian organisations Dyrebeskyttelsen Norge and NOAH for Dyrs Rettigheter will release new evidence which demonstrates that public support for whaling in Norway is dwindling, that the Norwegian appetite for whale meat is at an all time low and as a consequence the industry is struggling to survive. The diminishing profitability of the industry is already acknowledged by whalers and the Norwegian government as recent years have seen declining catches and fewer people and vessels involved in the hunts.

Thanks Simone.

Where were most people when God gave intelligence? The most simple of all rules is still too difficult for most people to understand.

Here it comes:

In Japan, they have to give it away free to school children for their meals because they can't get anyone to buy it. WAKE UP NORWAY! >^..^

So so sad...what is it when these few countries that just wont give up whaling!!! The majority of the population is against it!!! It pisses me off so bad...what is the point of killing these majestic creatures, in such a horrific way? Scientific research my ass.....I just wish people would wake up and take a look at the blood on their hands and realize that killing an animal is just as bad as killing a human...
