“Japan’s Bogus Excuse For Killing Hundreds Of Pregnant Whales”
Every year, Japan undertakes what it has labeled as a scientific hunt for whales in the Southern Ocean. However, in 2014, the International Court of Justice ruled Japan should stop. Instead, Japanignored the ruling last year and announced it would continue whaling while reducing the number of whales it would kill by two-thirds to 333.
On Thursday, Japan’s Institute of Cetacean Research detailed that out of the 333 minke whales it killed, 230 were females, and that more than 90 percent of those were pregnant.
