A Newly Discovered Excuse

I have recently discovered a new excuse for dolphin and whale killing. It seems to some people (including some scientists and biologists) that if a species is not endangered, that murdering them is okay. I have read things on the Internet saying that slaughter is not a problem for certain species because their population isn't low. Whether a species is endangered or not, killing is killing; it is cruel no matter what. If you kill enough, they will eventually become endangered, just like others. Then the endangered species will become protected, and the killers will move on to another species with a steady population. Slaughters will go on and on until we eventually wipe out our oceans. Obviously, the dumb biologists who think it's okay to slaughter one species after another don't understand the eventual consequences and devastation. I am not going to be a biologist like that advocates killing.

Humans aren't endangered (actually, our population is probably too high), but they were once being massacred in huge numbers (most recently during the holocaust circa WWII). If humans were currently being slaughtered like ocean creatures, people would go crazy and everybody would want to stop it. If an animal has a high population, all people can think is, "well if just a couple hundred are killed every day it's okay," but that's not true. It's not okay. The world is messed up, and there will always be evil, but the amount of evil can decrease if we have enough people who care.
