I'll discuss Japan.
The majority of Japanese now oppose whaling and dolphin culling, in majority poll votes over 70% do not wish for it to take place.
Additionally why does Japan say its for Scientific research? Not for traditional reasons as you claim.
The cultural traditions from many societies of over a 1000 years we have done away as we have adapted to larger social awarness as a result of
managing larger communities and their needs.
Shall we keep women not voting as that was tradition?
Shall we keep men the only ones with economic income as that was tradition?
Shall we support human sacrifice as that was tradtion?
Give me a break.
Tthe traditional hunt was manageable and a acceptable social requirement, the culling for extreme population growth is not sustainable. Whale burgers
I think we can do without, the traditional Japanese did not eat mass produced Whale burgers, and this is where most of the meat consumed goes. The
poisoning is CULLING not hunting for requirement.
So had it been for local villages hunting food, no probs here, but its current mass slaughter for purely economic gain,
NOT FEEDING your
family/village/tribe as traditional prupose as you claim is a brutality that I don't support.
Its about money not tradition, see these culls (not hunts) for what they are: economic prosperity.
Its like your saying clubbing seals for fur is not for money, but for skins for traditional hunters.
Welcome to the 21 century
