These are intelligent, majestic, and amazing creatures that do not deserve this heartless and sickening slaughtering. STOP IT NOW.

John Philip, Whales do not eat people, in fact like dolphins, they are mammals with intelligence and do not harm people, they help and communicate with people !! Shame on you :(

That's not completely true Melissa. There are two breeds of Orca and one (they eat seals) has been known to eat people (though unlikely on purpose.) The breed of Orca that have been taken into or have been raised in captivity eat fish, not seals, which is why they have no interest in human beings. There's a reason they have acquired the name "Killer Whale." You might find it interesting to look more into that.

Orcas aren't whales, they're dolphins.

Sally, the fact that dolphins DON'T harm people is an ill-informed misconception - Dolphins will quite happily drown human beings if they want to - They are intelligent, but not intelligent enough to understand why we are struggling in the water rather than just swimming around like they do

Dolphins have quite a twisted sense of humour (and yes, they do have a sense of humour), and if they think its fun to drown someone, they'll do it... If they think its fun to try to save you, they'll do it

Still tho - This kind of slaughter is illegal under conservation and environmental law, and needs to be stopped, so I still urge you all to sign this petition

My big question.
Domestic animals is not a naturally wild animal.
Domestic animals have been improved the human conveniently.
It is not the intention of the animal.
This is true even for plants.
Which animal is the animal that has been abused by humans?

"Do not eat animals with high intelligence" to the claims of you guys.
Think its reverse, "You're good to go eat to Animals with a low intelligence ".
The Plants can not feel the intelligence. So may be slaughtered.

It is the same as the...

It is the same as the logic of a man who was a genocide to humans in Europe 70 years ago.

I think I should not eat animals that there is a danger of extinction.

Please prove it scientifically.
Do not use your Emotions.

日本語で失礼します。日本での個人的な話しです。わたしは現在、ほ乳類をできるだけ食べないようにしています。宗教的な戒律だとかそういった外部てきな理由ではありませんが、それだけの理由で、一部の人は奇異なものを見るような目を向けてきます。

イルカについては、触れてみれば一目瞭然ですが、完全に個人格を持つ生き物です。感情論以外に、人格が人格たりえることを証明する手だてはあるのでしょうか。これは人格という言葉じたいの定義の問題になってしまい、これを言語によって語ることが可能になるとすれば、信仰について語ることです。日本ではとても素朴な信仰について語るだけで、それはカルトと呼ばれることがあるでしょう。それはまったく理由のない、つまり感情的に、です。

この場合、文化や信仰レベルの違いを鑑みたうえで、それでも彼らは人格であり人格を殺害すること(要はhumanを殺害すること)をやめてもらいたいと請願するのは、日本の側にとって感情的でない会話であることは不可能に思います。感情的な会話をしているのは、日本人のほうだからです。哲学や信仰の会話が可能なら、有意味な対話が可能になるのではないでしょうか。

と、クジラの話しをするといつでも同じことを思います。英語がさだかでないので、議題がずれていたらすみません。
