Can anyone hunt whales legally?

    Yes! Lots of countries, including the U.S., can hunt whales legally, though the catch is often incredibly limited. The Wikipedia is actually a good resource on this; if you go to and scroll down to Modern Whaling you’ll find a long list of countries allowed to whale.

    In May 1999, the Makah Indian tribe in Washington state legally hunted and killed their first gray whale in 70 years amid much public protest. The tribe has a long tradition of whaling and was ordered to obtain a waiver from the U.S. Marine Mammal Protection Act before proceeding with their next hunt. However, an unofficial hunt was executed by five Makah tribesmen in 2007. The men were unable to bring the whale back due to the mass of the whale.
