Whale in a Can

Whale Meat Can
Originally uploaded by pookie_san99.
One of my more distressing discoveries recently was this can of whale meat.Alerted about it by a colleague I purchased my can from a local Family Mart store.
Overpriced at 470 yen and probably illegal in most civilised countries I still wonder at finding it so freely available on the shelves..
Below the Whale Meat title (in capital letters) the label crudely translated states"There exist in the world one million minke whales"
Maybe its a way to justify the continued "research program"....
