Makah whaling rights extended for 5 years

Makah whaling rights extended for 5 years

Associated Press

PORT ANGELES, Wash. - The Makah tribe has international approval to hunt gray whales for another five years.

The International Whaling Commission on Tuesday gave approval for the Neah Bay tribe to kill 20 whales. But the tribe still must get a waiver of the federal marine Mammal Protection Act before any more hunts can begin. It could be years before another whale is harpooned off the Olympic Peninsula.

The tribe last killed a gray whale in 1999.

Makah Councilman Micah McCarty says Tuesday's announcement is a symbolic victory, since whale hunting is tied up in other legal battles.

now lets see how long they honor it
