Is it necessary to hunt for...

I've been seeing more shows about the envirenment lately, and by no means do I consider myself a tree hugger, but some of them make sense to me. The ones that really catch my attention are about whale hunting. I mean I can watch deer or cows or chickens be butchered, and it doesn't bother me one bit. But when I see the killing of whales it sort of makes me say "What the FooK?" It just seems to me that whales and related animals like dolphins and porpoises should be protected. I guess maybe because they are an animal that has intelligence that it separates them from the rest of the ocean creatures, for me atleast, along with the possibility the could become extinct. And the fact that Americans don't dine on whale blubber, that I know of, well, maybe eskimo's, but that is a separate issue. As far as I know they are supposed to be protected, but Japan, Denmark and I think Norway continue to do it, along with Russia. Japan apparantly has so much whale meat they use it as dog food. And Russia hunts them to feed the Fox and Minks they harvest for fur, which I also think is BS. I know I am being sort of vague here, but I was just wondering what everybody else thought. Also, I put this here because it seemed sort of appropriate, because it has to do with hunting, but I am in no way against hunting. I know for a fact without hunting deer populations would decimate they're food supply and they would eventually starve, and pigs and aligators are becoming a big nuisance and danger to humans and other animals. There are a couple more topics along this I would like to throw out there too.

I will say that I don't agree with whale hunting. That being said it was delicious when I ate it in Norway. It was something I have never had and will never eat again. It was cool to have it once but I agree. Our ocean mammals are getting over harvested.

True. One animal is sharks. They long line them, haul them in, hack there fins off and throw them back. What a waste.

If you think they are being over fished by us, I would recommend that you talk to a commercial fisherman about what their quotas are, as opposed to the rest of the world.

Hunting is necessary in most cases, like Elk, Deer, Pronghorn, and MANY other land dwellers. I am like the OP, watching them kill a whale is like watching a dog die IMO. It upsets me.We need to send Josh out in the sewer tube, and take those whale killing fawkers out

Tough call. I have no use for Whale or Porpoise, but can't knock those who do.

And I sure as hell don't think we need any more government or worse, nato regulations.

PSD- yea, I finally got one.

The whale thing doesnt really bother me either way but i have no idea about their population numbers or what the hunters use them for etc. I do enjoy watching whale wars though but I think they have some screws loose to risk their life for one.

To each their own, so long as its done in a manner that doesnt exhaust the species. Who am I to say what someone else can or cannot eat? In India the cow is sacred. Gotta tell you I'd have a big problem with the Indians saying we cant eat beef anymore. I figure its a 2 way street.
