    Sushi chef, restaurant charged with serving endangered whale

    Sushi chef, restaurant charged with serving endangered whale | Reuters



    (Reuters) - A California sushi chef and the restaurant in which he worked have been charged with illegally serving meat from an endangered Sei whale, the Justice Department said on Thursday.

    U.S. | Green Business

    Kiyoshiro Yamamoto, 45, and the parent company of the popular restaurant The Hump in Santa Monica were charged late on Wednesday with violating the Marine Mammal Protection Act which makes it illegal to sell any kind of whale meat.

    The case stemmed from informants who ordered whale meat at the restaurant in October 2009 and evolved into a sting operation by U.S. wildlife and customs officials who observed whale meat being served at the restaurant last week.

    "Someone should not be able to walk into a restaurant and order a plate of an endangered species," U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte Jr. said in a statement.



    I'd eat it.

    I would try it at least once to see if I like it or maybe a whale steak.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I would not. Whales are sentient mammals, it would be like eating a slice of Hellhound.

    Yeah, but every time we refuse to eat something made of meat, PETA wins.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Can't you start with the kitties and puppies? We have a glut of them in America, and whales are RARE.

    I knew that whole salt thing was a slippery slope. As if THAT weren't bad enough, now they're telling us we can't eat whale??? What's next? Are they going to be confiscating my entire stock of imported Panda? I've tried my Oolong marinade with chicken and let me tell you, it does NOT work.
