keypusher: They used to be endangered. They aren't endangered any more, so the state wants to remove them from the endangered list.I guess the stupid tag is for subby.
dittybopper: They are a least concern species. Plenty of them (over 80,000), they haven't been classified as "endangered" since 1988, and they've made a great come-back since the Soviet Union is no longer whaling them illegally, claiming to have caught just 2,710 when in fact they killed 48,721 of them.Everyone points the finger at Japan, but the real crime was Soviet whaling. At least the Japanese were honest.
