      The grey whale.

      I live very close to Neah Bay, and can only tell you I am appalled and disturbed about what has happened this weekend.

      This was a renegade group of 5, including 2 members who were involved in the 1999 legal hunt of the grey whale . At that point, they were legal, they caught their whale, celebrated and ate the whale. They celebrated their heritage.

      What occurred on Saturday morning in killing this whale it too horrible. A renegade group of 5 without notifying the tribal council, or gaining acceptance from the State, Federal, or even the global whaling commission, decided to take a grey whale. This whale suffered for about 10 hours before the coast guard set it free to sink.

      I know someone in Neah Bay, and after calling her this eve on another subject (not wanting to be obvious), she asked me if I had heard about the whale, I told her I did. She then said it was awful, but since the salmon weren't running, they had the right!!!!!

      Strike me down now. This is all I know, and that's how it is.

      So sad, I honour the whale who died, and wish he/she didn't have to die so painfully.

      I wish the rest of the world was as compassionate as you are, SK. Seems a large part of the human race has no regard whatsoever for other sentient beings, nor for the world environment. You can help by continuing to voice your shock and dismay, by being an example of someone who cares deeply.

      That's awful.....I hadn't heard about it here in the uk. I understand the debate about whether it's right to take a life for food, and I think I see both sides, but to me there is never, ever a right to inflict suffering in the taking of that life, especially over a protracted period of time. 10 hours?? That's despicable, whatever their tribal rights may be.

      The measure of humanity is how we treat other sentient beings. Let's face it...we're cr*p.

      Thanks for speaking out SK:l

      That just makes me so sad. I hate to see anything suffer especially an animal, mammal or anything at the hands of humans.

      Used to have a bumper sticker that said :
      "Save the world, kill yourself." Not very positive I know but human beings are the only living creatures who really destroy it!

      Poor thing...

      This is so sad, SK, and it makes me so angry. The good news is that there are still plenty of people in the world like you who do get angry and voice their concern. I have hope that one day things will get better in this world.

      Hugs to you, SKendall. :l :l

      Hmmm - I guess as omnivores, we have evolved to eat other animals - but along with that evolution, we also theoretically evolved intelligence, compassion and empathy for other living things.

      It saddens me that there are still so many people in the world that do not care if they cause suffering.
      In this day and, so called enlightened, age - if it is absolutely necessary to kill for food, and there is no way of killing humanely - we should not be doing it.
      Allowing ANY living thing to suffer for 10 hours is inexcusable!
