Whale meat theft – Greenpeace swings The Big Stick
FRESH off the BBC news feed comes a whale of a story. Greenpeace, who in this instance has removed their “wacko eco-terrorism” hat and donned their “holier than thou whistle blower” hat revealed that indeed Japanese whale meat had been stolen and sold prior to government release. Early reports allege that at least a tonne of whale has been affected.
This quantity sounds large, but when taken into context only accounts for roughly 1.5% of a single full grown whale. Just the same, TSJ advises readers against buying your whale meat under the table at reduced prices as it could likely be tied to this incident.
