More on Japan Whaling

Thanks to Possum for sending me these two news clips. One is about a stranded whale that freed itself off of the R.I. Coast and the other is about the Japan Whale hunt.
A juvenile humpback whale that got tangled in fishing gear and had been stranded off the Rhode Island coast over the weekend freed itself and swam off Monday as rescuers sought to aid it.

Japanese fisherman claim that their target kill number of 50 humpback whales is their "line in the sand."

Sea Shepherd and Greenpeace both vow to intervene with the Japan whaling fleet in hopes of preventing any carnage out there in the Antartic waters. Read more here: Group vows to block Japan whaling fleet

If this sort of issue concerns you and you would like to do something about it, please visit the
Sea Shepherd and / or Greenpeace websites. Both accept donations that are tax deductible.
