mmm.... whale burger...

Only in Japan.... where scientists are busy trying to create 'cow-whale' hybrids.

"Some of the experiments involved injecting dead minke sperm into cow eggs, others attempt to produce test-tube whale babies and thawing frozen whale sperm to see if it remained fertile."
"(The research involves) really bizarre and very strange experiments with sheep and pigs and eggs. It's totally esoteric, very strange research," [Dr Nick Gales] said from London." (

But it looks like all of this may be a front to keep slaughtering/hunting whales. way to go ethics!
