All petitions/campaigns to stop this slaughter have failed. Why? Because this slaughter is apart of their culture. The non-commercial hunts date back to the 9th century.

Of course, these animals aren’t protected by the IWC, and even if they were, the IWC would still allow it because of its indigenous whaling rights.
Did I also mention that the teenage boys take part in the slaughter to prove that they are real men and adults?
