In 1999 the Makah tribe of Washington State last legally killed a whale and now they have petitioned the Federal Government to start killing whales again as early as this spring. Graphic video of 1999 killing can be seen HERE.
From the news story. The baby whale killed was named "Yabis," the Makah word for Beloved, by a tribal elder who opposed the slaughter
The National Maritime Fisheries Service has proposed a waiver of the Marine Mammal Protection Act’s moratorium on the killing of marine mammals to allow the Makah Tribe to kill Eastern North Pacific gray whales again.The federal government is asking for the public's input.

Illinois House Bill 4123 is a terrible piece of legislation that would protect those who abuse animals by outlawing any type of ban on animals used for entertainment, hunting or agriculture.
If you live in Illinois, please immediately contact the members of the "Cities & Villages Committee," where the bill currently is. You can get contact info for the committee HERE
