122 Pregnant whales killed in hunt
MetadataShow full item record
Japan killed 122 pregnant minke whales during a highly controversial annual whaling expedition that Tokyo defends as scientific research, but conservationists call "gruesome and unnecessary." The four-month expedition in the Antarctic ended in March after the fleet killed 333 minke whales, according to a report submitted by Japanese authorities to the International Whaling Commission. Of those, 122 were pregnant, with dozens more immature whales among those killed.
