Whale meat is murder?

In the company of whales - Environment - Macleans.ca:

The Dominica Sperm Whale Project aims to get to know these whales “personally,” Gero says, and study them as individuals. Like Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey did in their groundbreaking research on primates, Gero has followed families of sperm whales from birth to maturity, learning about their daily lives in a way that’s never before been done with large whales that live in the open sea.
Moz has been roundly denounced, not without justification, for his insensitive comments about the massacre in Norway relative to what McDonald's and KFC do day in and day out. But would we be so quick to call him an ass if whales and chimps were slaughtered with the same regularity as cows and chickens?

I don't know.

  1. I don't find what he said offensive, but I think there are other situations where human beings are needlessly killed without anyone caring. Wars and the Texas justice system comes to mind, but I might go so far as to point to drunk drivers or even the food at McDonalds and KFCrap as also being quite deadly.
