It's very interesting that the Norwegians never received the same international ire and animosity as the Japanese. Even the Faroese pilot whale kills doesn't face the same anger as the Taijin dolphin kills, and the Japanese take much fewer cetaceans!

Is it any wonder why this report came out 10 days ago and hasn’t gone viral? Go figure! :mocking:  :lol2: :clapping:

Interesting, thanks.  I had no idea that Norway was doing so much whaling.

Terrible facts indeed. ..
It's al about exposure and media when you come to think of it. And unfortunately one does just not feel the direct impact of such killings. Luckily there are many divers/explorers reporting on these activities on social media.
