Suit against whale hunt filed again
Facebook Twitter Email

A coalition of environmental groups has again filed suit against the federal government for approving a whale hunt by the Makah Nation of Washington.

The Humane Society, the Fund for Animals and other groups said the approval was done without proper environmental review. They want a complete study done before whaling is resume.

A previous suit by environmental groups resulted in a broader hunt than had been conducted in previous years. Animal-rights activists refused to concede their strategy backfired.
