Why do ppl continue to HUNT whales to extinction?
It seems whalers think that they can kill a specific number of whales each year, no more, and their scientists tell them this is a sustainable number so the whale will not go extinct. Whalers believe whaling is good for the economy and provides jobs and food for an impoverished nation. Although measures are being taken to prevent a whale species extinction, which all nations unilaterally agree is bad, there seems to be a lack of sympathy in the amount of physical pain the whale must experience when being killed and a total overlooking of whale intelligence in terms of it being an animal that is basically too intelligent for people to mindlessly kill. There’s also a moratorium, or an international law or ban on whale hunting that some countries refused to sign or agree to.
