Jonathon Delacour on whale hunting

Jonathon Delacour on whale hunting and the funding of environmental campaigners: The raw and the cooked (Cetacean)

[...]I might find Mr Hanich's argument more persuasive if the anti-whaling lobby hadn't worked so assiduously to persuade us that whales and dolphins shouldn't be hunted because they are so intelligent. If blue whales are closer in intelligence to the sheep than the dog and if they can be harvested sustainably as Dr Flannery suggests then surely the argument against hunting them falls apart. (Although my case may be weakened or strengthened, depending on one's viewpoint, by the fact that I've eaten sheep, dog, and whale as well as snake, cat, crocodile, kangaroo, and emu).
A very well written article indeed and worth reading for anyone willing to at least reconsider their position on whaling...
