Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Japan Starts Whale Hunt Season

Baird’s Beaked (Hyperoodon ) Whale – AFTER

“Here in Wada we eat whales. Every family eats whale at least once during the summer whaling season,” said a school teacher. “If we are eating whales, we have the responsibility to see and learn how they’re prepared.”

“For us, whale is food. Whaling is a good tradition, and I want to pass on the trade before I die,” said a butcher whose firm processes and sells whale.

The area of Wadaura in Wada (Chiba Prefecture) is infamous for whaling, and is one of several areas in Japan where whaling is highly promoted as a national tradition [symbol against the cultural imperialism of Western nations.”]

“The court [International Court of Jokers] ruling doesn’t say anything about any kind of whaling except scientific research. Other types of whaling are allowed,” said the butcher.

In the past week alone, his company has butchered six Baird’s beaked (bottlenose) whales, said the report, and plans to o catch 24 more before whaling season ends in late August.

“It’s our right to take and eat whale within our waters,” he added.
