Scientific whale killing

"The Australian Government says it has legal evidence to back its fight to stop Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean.

Home Affairs Minister Bob Debus today declared the Australian Customs monitoring of the whaling a success, and also announced it would be extended for an unspecified period of time.

A Customs crew aboard the Oceanic Viking has been monitoring the whaling and collecting photographs of the catch.

One of the Government's photographs, apparently of a mother minke whale and its calf being hauled aboard a Japanese whaler, was released to Australian media today."
