Japan to hunt humpbacks

for "science" of course. These are not the minke which they usually hunt and which can arguable withstand some hunting. I haven't heard anyone claim humpbacks are numerous enough to hunt. Regardless, they will be hunted soon. One gets the very strong feeling that it is being done for spite, not science.

Japan said on Tuesday it was pushing ahead with a controversial plan to hunt humpback whales after other nations at the International Whaling Commission refused a compromise offer.

Australia and New Zealand have warned it would be a "provocative act." Article HERE.
