I think this is horrible and I wish the world court would do something about it. Calling this scientific research is just a smoke screen. If your really interested in doing research you don't need to slaughter the animal. Maybe all research with whales should be stopped if they can use it as a excuse to kill the animals or change the rules so they can't..Militant anti-whaling activists Sea Shepherd said they had zeroed in on a Japanese fleet Monday and captured evidence that four whales had been slaughtered, alleging the ships were found inside a Southern Ocean sanctuary.

Maybe there should be laws allowing for the sinking of these ships when caught doing this.
What are your thoughts on this?
