Icelandic whaling company kills endangered Blue whale
Kristján Loftsson’s commercial whaling company, based out of Hvalfjordur, Iceland, has harpooned and slaughtered an endangered Blue whale. It is the first such killing in fifty years. The company has already killed twenty-one Fin whales, another endangered species that no other country in the world hunts because of an international moratorium. From the article, “Loftsson’s whaling station crew posed for photos next to and even on top of the whale in a sign they knew very well this was a rare Blue whale.”
