Whales are endangered, or close to it.
Pigs, chickens, cows, etc. are no where near that. If the numbers of Cows, chickens, and pigs drop to a alarming level ( actually well before that ) we would stop killing them.
If whales had the numbers as cows, chickens, and pigs. Hell, Salmon, Cod, Shrimp...( Salmon numbers are dropping though ) I would not be complaining, and I doubt as many would be.
Stupid comparison in my opinion.
Perhaps you should read between the lines of what I said. It's only okay to slaughter animals if there's plenty around? Well by that logic, you wouldn't have cared on 9/11, only a few thousand people died, right? Or, is your next comment going to be that, that is yet again a stupid comparison because human life is more important, right? I think so, you don't seem the compassionate kind to me.
Just my opinion
