April 2008
Weekly Reader News - Senior;4/25/2008, Vol. 86 Issue 26, p3
The article presents a debate on whether the people in Iceland should be allowed to hunt whales or not. Hunting whales was put to a stop when the whales became endangered but the whale population has rebounded so people were allowed to hunt again. Katelyn Vlastaris believes that hunting whales would not permanently damage the whale population because more whales are being born every day. Andrew Steinkoenig thinks that hunting whales should not be allowed in Iceland.
