Just watched Star Trek IV with the lady, so I was curious...what are y'all's opinion of whaling? Good? Bad? Should be banned? None of the government's business?

The hunting of any species that is endangered/threatened should be banned. Particularly when the animal has a long life span with relatively infrequent offspring, making it much harder for the species to recover from overhunting.

Also, on a side note, I disapprove in general of "wasteful" hunting, when an animal is killed only to harvest some small part and the rest is allowed to go to waste - ie elephants for their ivory.

I'd give my opinion on hunting in general, but I'd probably be shot....

:P

But yes, I agree.

Whale tastes good.

oh baby yeaaaaah. (in all seriousness - I don't really support poaching. But if it was a controlled harvest against species with sustained population levels - such as eskimos i'm all for that. mmm whale meat)
