Update: Icelandic whaling vessel, Hvalur 8, which has been hunting fin whales since September 1st, has been ordered to suspend its operations. The order is due to failing to kill one whale quickly enough, in violation of the country’s Animal Welfare Act per the Icelandic Veterinary Authority.
The decision comes just one week after the hunting of whales resumed following the government’s decision to authorize the horrific archaic practice.
Svandís Svavarsdóttir, it’s time to put an END to whaling once and for all!
