Since Greenpeace left the Antarctic, due to low fuel, the Japanese whalers began their slaughter of whales. Australia who is strongly condemning the whale slaughter is still following the Japanese whalers. And yesterday they could release images and videos of the Japan whaling fleets slaughter of a whale mother and her calf (video after the jump).
Peter Garrett, Australian environment minister, said that "it is explicitly clear from these images that this is indiscriminate killing of whales, where you have a whale and its calf killed in this way. And to claim that this is in any way scientific is to continue the charade that has surrounded this issue from day one."
Mr Morimoto, japanese whalers ICR Director, said to the whalers defence that "it is necessary to conduct random sampling of the Antarctic minke population to obtain accurate statistical data."
I wonder how "random" a "sampling" of 900 minke whales and 50 fin whales really is?
