It seems the whalers and anti-whalers can’t come to a compromise on how many Shamus to harpoon in the ocean deep says the BBC.
Attempts to agree a compromise between whaling nations and their opponents at the International Whaling Commission’s (IWC) annual meeting have failed.
After two days of private discussions, delegates reported they had been unable to reach agreement on major issues.
The deal would have put whaling by Iceland, Japan and Norway under international oversight for 10 years.
Japan kills at least 900 whales a year, and the anti-whalers would like that number to be down near 200 in 10 years?
Think that is reasonable, well you don’t understand the Japanese’s love for tasty whale meat…
Ya know, I have never ate whale before, I think I might try it after reading this!
