Dolphin Slaughter In Taiji, Japan Continues...

Although this is some what not in today's recent news, it is something that I feel is important to blog about and it is the dolphin killing that has had it's annual return at The Cove in Taiji, Japan. The most recent update about what has happened included the return of dolphins being slaughtered. Although not many, compared to previous years, were killed for their meat, this hunt has continued due to the Japanese fishermen's "proud legacy." They still slaughter and skin the sea creatures in order to sell the meat and earn money. It's reasonable to catch fish and eat them, but to kill a bigger animal that is known to be an innocent, friendly creature is something way off the bar. The organizations that have come together are still recording the fishermen at work and are still spreading the word. Day by day, they are gaining support and will continue to fight until this crime has come to an end.

  1. When it comes to animal cruelty, most of is will readily agree that such offenses are morally corrupt. Where as I personally am disgusted beyond belief and firmly maintain these so called "fishermen" must be held legally accountable for the murders they are committing.

  2. This is so gross. I also read somewhere that these dolphin meat are given to students as lunch.

  3. Yuck! Poor dolphins. And we just learned in Psych that these animals are capable of great intelligence too... Just saddening. :(
