CETACEANS MEAT 2 Do you consume fish? Or lobster? Maybe even shrimp or clams? Do you feel as if you have taken the life of an innocent sea creature whenever you eat them? Probably not. Now think of eating dolphin or whale meat like we do those initial sea creatures I listed above. Would you still view these cetaceans as just a normal every day delicacy? Or would you view them as much more? I’m coming to you today to shed light on these creatures and the slaughtering that takes place in many parts of the world for their meat. My main locations of focus are Taiji, Japan (killing of dolphins) and the Faroe Islands (killing of whale).

They used sharp spear like rods made of metal that cause instant paralysis in the creature once gouged roughly. Imagine you and 30 of your family members including young cornered and brutally attacked and killed one at a time. This is what they witnessed right before being killed.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
