I wonder if her commitment will be as short-lived as her commitment to veganism.

If so, I don't hold out much hope she'll make much of an impact.

Truly shameful. No animal lover would consider visiting a zoo, aquarium or animal circus.

That's not love. That's abuse.

All countries have their animal abuse issues. That's for sure. However, Japan is a "great" leader in this field.

The Japanese authorities are fools.

This whole debacle only brings more attention to the issue revealing just how undemocratic Japan really is.

Posted in: Sea Shepherd warns Japan against resuming whaling See in context

Japan being its usual arrogant self, like the kid in the sandpit who doesn't get his way, claims he's being bullied but goes ahead in defiance and does what he wants anyway.

Continue to rape the ocean Japan. You won't be happy until you have totally destroyed it. Your whole "we're an island nation and rely on the sea" position just doesn't fly and never has.

Shepherd on SS. You have more respect and do more for this planet than any Japanese politician or the average Japanese Joe who is crippled by apathy.

Let the population decline. Japan, and the entire world, has more than enough people. It's not like we've done a good job as custodians of this earth so why contribute further to the destruction?

Posted in: Women flock to zoo to see 'hunky' gorilla See in context

Flocking to support cruelty.

Zoos are prisons for these pitiful animals...only the animals are not criminals, only the people who enslave them are.

Japan's zoos are notoriously bad. What century are we living in?

Such arrogance from Japan as always.

Rape the oceans Japan. Rape them! You won't be happy until they're decimated.

No ocean, no planet. No planet, no life.

It ain't rocket science.

Posted in: U.S. high court won't hear appeal over anti-whaling campaign See in context

For as long as Japan maintains its arrogant stance on this issue and continues to rape the oceans it can expect to be confronted with this.

Whaling is cruel, archaic, unnecessary and in the interests of a (powerful) few.

Get over yourself Japan.

No oceans, no planet. No planet, no future.

It ain't rocket science to figure that out.

The ICR is a total farce and we all know it.

Will they and Japan only be happy when there is no more ocean to exploit?

No oceans, no planet. No planet, no life.

It ain't rocket science.

Posted in: Taiji mayor says dolphin hunt will still go on See in context

Hiding behind the tradition argument doesn't cut the mustard. Firstly, it only started some 46 years ago. And, even if it were a tradition, that does not automatically qualify it to be acceptable. Some traditions have to go.

Any argument alluding to "the West kills animals inhumanely" (yes, it sure does!) doesn't fly either. Justifying cruelty by referencing another party's cruelty is not, in fact, any justification.

And, I ask, who enjoys watching animals do stupid tricks anyway, while living in a concrete jail that would NEVER, EVER replicate the ocean? Who? Like the tricks themselves, stupid people.

Posted in: Japanese man leaves $100,000 watch behind at Newark airport See in context

All the good that could be done with $100,000. Of course it's his money and if he wants to roll around naked in thousands of dollar bills that's his prerogative. But, I cannot have any respect for this kind of person. The joy of donating to, and fundraising for, good causes has taught me that such materialism is incredibly wasteful and the sense of achievement and satisfaction in doing this most definitely surpasses any gaudy piece of jewelry worn on one's wrist.

I wonder if he'll do any good deed in return for getting his watch back...

Posted in: Oita zoo under fire for naming baby monkey Charlotte See in context

Seriously?! People are up in arms about this? Simply unbelievable.

Why don't people take a look at the real problem here? It's a zoo, a Japanese zoo at that. In other words, it's a place of misery for the poor animals who "live" there. Now, that's something to be annoyed about.

Good for them!

Nothing unnatural about it. Love is love. Attraction is attraction. Two mutually-consenting adults. No need to question.

As for children, not everyone wants to or needs to procreate.

Japan must think the world is stupid.

How can anybody buy this argument? Pride and arrogance fuels them.

Give it up Japan. It will do a hell of a lot of good for your international reputation.

If he wants to go and do something to make this world a better place the government should keep their noses out of it. He knows what he is getting in to.

This is so typical of the attitude in Japan, the whole "soto" / "uchi" mentality, where they only want to look after our own and not help others.

Japan needs better food. Everything is full of fishy stuff, bits of bacon....basically, dead animals. It lags way behind the west in terms of decent food.

I see HelloKitty is lacking basic common sense. And, even if that were true, extinction would be preferable to the indescribable cruelty these animals suffer for a bum nut (egg), the milk designed for another species (cows) and all the other gross and unnatural products obtained from animals.

Posted in: Actress Rei Dan appointed 'washoku' ambassador See in context

Ho, hum. Yawn.

There is nothing "special" about washoku except the presentation. Nobody beats Japan when it comes to presentation.

Compared to Middle Eastern food, Indian food, Italian food, Greek food...oh, the list goes on, washoku offers nothing in comparison (oh, except that presentation).

As for the "food" itself, far too much reliance on seafood, contributing substantially to the demise of the world's oceans. No ocean, no planet. No planet, no future.
