Caption only: Whales - the hunter and the hunted

A killer whale hunts for salmon Tuesday near Bremerton, Wash. Another type of whale may again be hunted. The United States and Russia are backing a proposal to allow America's Makah Indians to resume their traditional whale hunts for the first time in 70 years. The International Whaling Commission, which is meeting in Monaco, has been asked to allow indigenous people of America and arctic Russia to share stocks of gray whales.
