  • **Join NY4Whales and FAUN on Wednesday February 5, 2014 as we put pressure on the Japanese Government and enlighten the public about the Japanese whale slaughter.**

    Whaling is not scientific!! 

    “Scientific whale hunting”, is a front for what is clearly a multi-million dollar black market industry, an industry of greed and false science.

    Cruel Killing Methods..... the truth about whaling

    "Whaling nations claim that the killing methods used are humane . Firstly, the whale is frantically chased across the seas for hours and then shot with a harpoon grenade. This grenade tipped harpoon explodes inflicting severe pain. The fortunate ones die from the shock and exertion of the chase alone. Once embedded inside the whale the grenade explodes causing massive trauma and internal bleeding from lacerations, this results in agonizing pain and suffering.

    In addition shock waves from the blast cause neurotrauma, that is brain and spinal chord damage which is meant to kill the whale within 2 minutes. However in order to better preserve the integrity of the flesh a lower amount of explosive is used, therefore the whale takes longer to die and consequently suffers for longer.

    In most cases the whales are fully conscious as they slowly die from these horrific wounds and so suffer extreme fear and distress. So profuse is the bleeding that many of the whales spew blood from the blowholes on the top of their heads. They eventually are dragged on to the ships and with some butchered alive." source: whalingnomore.org
