In a statement, the restaurant said “The charge against the restaurant is true: The Hump served whale meat to customers looking to eat what in Japan is widely served as a delicacy,” the statement continued. “In serving this meat, The Hump ignored its responsibilities to help save endangered whales from extinction and failed to support the world community in its uphill fight to protect all endangered species.” The misdemeanor charge carries a prison stay of up to a year and a $200,000 dollar fine.
Not nearly enough. (FYI, the stupid name of the place is a slang term for the Himalayas. Whatever.)
