Fishermen in Norway eat pilot whale after entanglement in net
According to local reports, fishermen in Norway ate meat from a long-finned pilot whale after the unfortunate creature became entangled in their fishing net and died.
While this was a rare event for these fishermen, hundreds of thousands of whales and dolphins die each year after becoming trapped in nets and other fishing gear around the world. The fishermen appear to have been inspired to eat the whale by events in the Faroe Islands where locals kills hundreds of pilot whales each year for their meat.
Elsewhere in Norway, whalers continue their self-allocated annual hunt for minke whales. As of June 9th, 353 whales have been killed so far this year.
