INFORMATION

Iceland's whaling season began last week, kicking off a bloody whale hunt that could lead to the death of 100 minke whales.

Iceland is one of only two countries worldwide that still authorizes commercial whaling. About half of the whale meat from this year's hunt is intended for domestic sales in Iceland, while the rest of the quota will be sold to Japan.
