THE sea turns red with blood as a harpooned
whale is butchered in the name of research.
com/topics/detail/380/japan/) Japanese Antarctic whale hunt and a dead minke whale after Japanese whalers harpooned
it near the tail.
I took the picture of the whale being harpooned
, left, from a helicopter we were using to follow the whaling ship.
With this image in mind we must ask: why are whales harpooned
today, 20 years after the practice was banned?
What sort of a message will be transmitted by a harpooned
whale dying in agony and what will be the effect on other whales of this and the blood and offal discharged into the sea from factory ships?
