As with the hunting of many other species, whaling was an unregulated activity. The pain is killing but it does not kill you, not yet.
Any actions threatening wildlife and its habitat must be banned right now. The international community has to make the choice whether we want to risk killing them.
Just imagine that instead of the senseless and horrific murder by the use of exploding harpoons whales should be respected and live their lives in peace. But that is just the killing process.
Metal rods are now driven through the dolphins to cause paralysis. Economically whales are of much more value alive than when they are hunted and killed for meat.
