I sincerely hope this is some hard evidence that can be used to ban whaling world wide
WASHINGTON, June 6 (UPI) -- U.S. President Barack Obama is breaking a campaign promise as his administration backs an effort to lift a 24-year ban on commercial whaling, critics say.

So? My dog will set at the front door and cry, every single time, if im not home on time. Happens literally every day that i'm late getting home from work.
That doesn't make her more human. She's still just a basset hound.
Does that mean Dogs are just as smart as whales?
