(Studio) On Friday, Judge John Sirica ruled that Eskimos should be allowed to continue hunting endangered bowhead whales, since they consider whales essential to culture and prime source of food. Appeals court today rules against Eskimos and Supreme Court Justice Warren Burger turns down final appeal by Eskimos to head off international ban on hunting bowheads, to go into effect tonight. However, State Department says it will seek international approval for Eskimos to hunt limited number of bowheads.
