Real LiveTrolls

Norwegian hunt extended yet again
The Norwegian authorities have taken the unprecedented step of extending the whaling season a second time, through to 31st October.

The Norwegian minke whaling season was initially due to close at the end of August. However, the season was extended to the end of September when, despite measures designed to make hunting easier, including new regulations lifting the maximum quota per vessel, authorities realised that the full quota of 796 minke whales would not be reached.

So far this season 639 whales have been killed. The season is being held open because there is still at least one vessel interested in killing more whales, in an attempt to fulfil the quota.

Philippa Brakes of WDCS said: “The Norwegian whaling season started a month early, and has now been extended twice. Even with three extra months added to the season it seems that the whalers are having great difficulty in fulfilling the quota. This raises several questions. Are the whalers having difficulty finding the whales? Is there, despite concerted efforts to stimulate the whale meat market, difficulty in selling the meat? Whatever the answer, this casts significant doubt over claims by Norway that the quota must continue to be increased, since this will be the fourth year in a row that the quota has not been met.�

Imagine whales were land animals. Drive up in your truck, shoot them with a harpoon, drag 'em about a bit. Barbarians.

RE: Real LiveTrolls

I hate whales.........They're all like... big and stuff. Someone wrote a funny book about whales (Herman Munster, I think) a long time ago.
Whales are born with perfect, capped teeth. They also have something in common with Man's Country on Clark street as they both have blowholes. They are very smart and if you could get a calculator to work underwater, they could do your taxes. The end.

Whales die such a horrible slow death, it's heart-breaking.

Fuck Whale Hunters [:(!]

RE: Real LiveTrolls

I wondedr if the WDCS has considered the possibility of a declining minke whale population due to the practice of whaling in the first place?

At least they are killed to have their body processed into something of use, as with other livestocks, as opposed to getting killed for the pleasure and gloating of wankers with guns



Many a tiger and other large land animal hunt in the 19th to 20th century consisted of mobilizing vast number of natives (as you can see in the background) setting up the perimeter so the animals won't escape. In that confinement, target animals are released or sometimes trapped. Then those proud looking wankers walk around with their entourage and shoot the animals in semi-captivity. It was not unusual for them to miss and stray bullets to hit the natives (collateral damage, they'd say). Afterwards, they'd regale about their hunt at an Officer's Club over gin & tonic... FUCK THEM.

But I'm with you on opposing slow and painful death: Fuck Astors et al for trapping beavers by setting up cage traps underwater, letting the beavers die in agonizing asphyxia that can last up to an hour, while they made off with the riches from the sales of beaver pelt... FUCK THEM.

RE: Real LiveTrolls

I don't see how old time big game hunters have anything to do with modern day whale hunters. The fact that Whales are turned into "useful" products is irrelevant IMHO.

Tigers are still being hunted and killed, nowadays for money rather than sport. I think that's worse if anything, at least we know now that they are endangered and are more aware of animal rights, the people you have singled out for attention were behaving in a perfectly acceptable manner for their time (although I agree they should get fucked).

If I was a Chinese medicine man I would tell you that Tiger Pizzle is a useful product; same with Bear bile, rhino horn etc.

BTW, there was a documentary shown here not long ago about Big Game Hunts in South Africa. The tour guides take hunters (usually tourists) to captured Lions in a field and they shoot them.

That's happening right now. Doesn't sound like much fun to me [V]
