    Does anyone remember that poor whale that managed to get itself caught in the Thames?

    I don't know which is more barbaric. At least a harpoon is swift this must have been terrifying for the whales. And all that blood while they were still struggling, tails beating the water, how awful.
    Are these type of whales not protected?

    I know we can't harp on how its wrong to kill whales when we eat meat every day

    Its just the way its done that I don't like, they kill them with knives by hacking through the spine

    Barbaric

    I know what you mean... we are so used to seeing the little neatly packaged lambchops, we tend to overlook the fact that they come from gamboling lambs (or what would have been a gamboling lamb)
