Japan whale experiments - "bizarre"




Quote:
Scientists have analysed 43 research papers produced by Japan over 18 years, finding most were useless or esoteric.

The scientific research included injecting minke whale sperm into cows eggs, and attempts to produce test-tube whale babies, News Limited newspapers report.

For years Japan has continued its whaling program under the guise of scientific research, to the disgust of anti-whaling nations such as Australia.

The head of Australia's scientific delegation to the International Whaling Commission (IWC), Dr Nick Gales, labelled the research "bizarre".

Yes, they certainly sound horrible. While the Japanese whaling season was on last month I was following the adventures of some anti-whaling protestors that make up an organization called Sea Shepherd. The link to them is at http://www.seashepherd.org/migaloo/.

Check out the campaign updates section, because it is the most interesting Very Happy.

It turns out that the Japanese coast guard (who were guarding the whalers) actually shot at the captain and he was only saved because of a Kevlar vest that he was wearing!
