Eating whale in Iceland!

Jump to last reply

I just got back from a two week trip to Iceland and want to get something off my chest about eating whale meat .(I am not an animal activist but if you are lucky to see these beautiful animals in the wild you will understand my comments.)

If you are going to Iceland and want to see these beautiful creatures in the wild, then don't think that it is cool to try the whale meat as a tourist treat.

Icelanders (along with Japan and Norway) are continuing to slaughter these creatures in the name of science (against the rest of the world's opposition) yet most of the meat is being sent to Asia for their consumption. Most of the Icelanders we spoke with do not eat whale meat and said that it is put on their menus strictly for the tourists. Quite a few of the Icelanders hope that those who kill these intelligent creatures realize that the whales also provide many jobs with the various whale watching jobs.

Iceland is amazing with its volcanoes,glaciers,geysers and animals-let others be able to see them too!
