Hunt on to catch Japanese whalers
THE Sea Shepherd crew is still trying to locate Japanese whaling ships in the Southern Ocean.
Sea Shepherd spokesman Jeff Hansen yesterday said he was confident the anti-whaling activists would find the fleet in coming days, but stressed the difficulty involved.
“It’s like trying to find a handful of semi-trailers along the coast of Australia,” Mr Hansen said.
“But the reality is [Japanese whalers] would not have been in a position to whale during December and we’ll hopefully intercept them in the new year …

British Citizens and UK Residents help to Stop the Dog and Cat Meat Trade in Korea!
NoToDogMeat: The Lucky Ones!
Posted By: J de Cadenet (campaign leader)
Hard to believe, but the photo attached shows the “lucky ones” some of the dogs who were rescued this year!
Raised in hideous conditions, stuffed in cages (like these) to await the vilest fate imaginable torture before slaughter, for no other reason that to satisfy the palette of nations who are in an economic boom.
Many know more about technology than we do and watching them invest in the West, we know it is not about necessity.
People choose to eat dog and cat meat, they choose the animal they want to be tortured. This is not cultural tradition, this is and always will be cruelty.

A Japanese whaling fleet is approaching Antarctic waters claimed by Australia. Scores of giant mammals will soon endure a long, painful death in Australian waters.

The fact that the Mafia, Syndicate, Cartel and Triad’s are involved heavily in shark fining, slaughtering bluefin tuna, massacring rhinos, elephants and tigers — as the demand for rhino horns, elephant ivory, fur and animals parts skyrockets — means these incredible beasts and others have no chance whatsoever to continue to live ( www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-rees… ) on planet Earth …
