I am not a tree hugger

By no means am I a tree hugger hippie, but I saw the move The Cove on Animal Planet last night.  I was amazed by what I saw.  The Japanese are killing over 23,000 dolphins a year.  The meat cannot be eaten because it has too much mercury in it.  But the Japanese are selling it and giving it to school children labeled as whale meat. 

This brings me to another point.  Whales, as see on Whale Wars also on Animal Plant are trying to stop whaling in the southern part of the world.  It is a big mess.  Over 90% of the world says the killing dolphins and whales is wrong and should not be done.  Japan says it kills the whales for research.  If that was true then why are they killing thousands of them?  They kill about a thousand hump back whales a year.  The hump back whales are on the endangered species list.  People are not to kill or hunt anything that is on that list.  So why are the Japanese killing them?  Why has the world not stopped them? 

Here are the links to the web sites that are trying to stop them.  I leave it up to you to figure out which is right or wrong.
