But are Those Whale-Burgers Dolphin-Safe?

Japanese school kids are eating hamburgers made of whale, and whale nuggets soaked in sweet and sour sauce.

Japan's used a loophole since 1987 to get around a global moritorium on whaling. They can take whales for "research" and the meat then winds up in stores, restaurants, and now, school cafeterias.

This may not be anything new. Remembering some of my school lunches, I wouldn't be surprised if that mystery meat hadn't been a lab animal either. (OneNews)

Are you arguing that you want to eat whale burgers too?

I don't understand your point.
