Obama deals, to end 24 year international ban on commercial whaling.
3 Countries, Iceland,Norway and Japan still hunt whales. 

 In 2007 Japanese whalers admitted nearly every female minke whale they killed in the Antarctic was pregnant.

Only, lying FOX NEWS will tell the story, 

“The 1986 moratorium unquestionably reduced the number of whales killed each year. But it’s not as clear by how much. Some estimate that an average of 38,000 whales were killed each year before the moratorium reduced it to an average of 1,240.”
