Japanese whaling Graphic footagePosted on Tuesday, June 22nd, 2010 at 2:06 pm by Felicia McCaulley
This is a truly disturbing video of Japanese Whaling practices. This video depicts a whaling vessel harpooning a minke whale and it’s calf, and then dragging them aboard a ship. Please share this link with everyone you know.
Australia’s government stepped up its campaign against Japanese whaling by releasing graphic footage of a minke whale and its calf being harpooned and dragged aboard a ship. The images were taken by a customs ship that has been tracking the Japanese fleet in the Antarctic to gather evidence for a diplomatic and legal battle against whaling. Japan’s whaling body accused Australia of spreading ’emotional propaganda’, and denied the whales were a mother and calf.
