Norway is killing minke whales and using their flesh to feed animals on fur farms.

Yes, you read that right. So few people in Norway want to eat whale meat that minke whales are being slaughtered to feed minks and other animals who are being farmed for their fur. The country's whale hunts, which kill around 600 whales each year, are dependent on subsidies from the government, which actively seeks to develop new markets for whale-derived products.

Whaling ships pursue sensitive, intelligent whales to the point of exhaustion before targeting them with exploding harpoons, which typically wound them without killing them. They're then dragged aboard the vessels and shot repeatedly with high-powered rifles. It often takes over an hour for a whale to die in this way.

Please help stop this bloody slaughter by writing to Norway's Prime Minister and asking her to put an immediate end to the hunts.
