Japan carries out so-called 'scientific whaling', and the results of this studious 'research', apart from ending up on the dinner plate, tends to be peer-reviewed by scientists within the same Japanese Government departments, and is published in only a few 'select' places.
So what does this research amount to? It would seem that the proponents of killing thousands of whales have been carrying out 'bizarre' tests to cross whales with cows..
It would seem that Australian Government officials have catalogued a series of 'very strange' tests being carried out – including attempts by Japanese whalers to produce test-tube hybrid calves that were conducted in a bid to justify Japan's slaughter 'for research'.
They also accused the government scientists of injecting minke whale sperm into cow eggs and implanting minke cells into cow and pig cells. Australian environment minister Peter Garrett said: 'I challenge anyone to look at this research and say it's necessary.'
So a 'scientific' hunting program that the IWC says is unnecessary and now a series of experiments Dr Frankinstein would have been proud of. As the old saying goes, ...there is nothing like good science, and this is nothing like good science.....
