Eating endangered animals

In relation to your comment about eating endangered animals. Cool. I'm endangered. Why don't you and your dumb student friends come and have a go here son. I'll beat you and your wacky contentious views into submission with a pick axe - seal meat style. Give us all a nice flavour of things huh?

Just like the traditional Japanese Dolphin hunt where they drive them into shallow water and the local villagers butcher them.
