DNA shows Iceland whale was rare hybrid
 
This report comes from BBC News Science & Environment:

Whale killing: DNA shows Iceland whale was rare hybrid - BBC News
Quote:

Genetic material from a large whale killed off the coast of Iceland has confirmed the creature was a rare hybrid.

Campaigners had been concerned that the slaughtered animal was a protected blue whale, the largest species on the planet.

Now DNA has shown it to be the offspring of a blue and a fin whale, as the whaling company had claimed.

Researchers say these hybrids are rare and trading their meat is illegal.

Protected hybrid of blue and fin whale pictured being flayed on a ship's deck so its meat can be sold off to fund the lifestyle of a multi-millionaire in Iceland
This story was also in their newspaper. It was sickening to read the scumbag Loftsson attempting to justify the execution of this unjustfiable atrocity. :mad:
