Annual Japanese Dolphin Slaughter Still Going On! At Least 30 Dolphins Murdered!

| Filed under: Sad SadDolphins

Annual Japanese dolphin slaughter ends with at least 30 dolphins dead!

This is just so absolutely awful!!

Japan's annual bottlenose dolphin hunt slaughter ended on Tuesday in the Taiji cove area where 200 dolphins were being held.

The fishermen of the village used a large tarp to shield the actual mass murder from reporters and activists.

But when it was all over, at least 30 dolphins were dead. Their blood seeped under the tarp and spread through the water.

Even though activists and basically the entire world are super opposed to the hunt, which the Japanese call a "tradition," it still goes on.

They use boats to corral the dolphins and then kill them by stabbing metal rods in to their spinal cords.

The dolphins then bleed out and suffocate to death.

This is just so awful we can barely stand it.

This needs to STOP NOW!!!

    Perez - the dolphin hunt takes place EVERY DAY for 6 months of every year, from 1st September. Literally thousands of dolphins are brutally slaughtered every year. The hunt is not tradition - it only became regular in 1969 - around the time Sea World began looking for captive dolphins. The hunt also sells dolphins into a life of slavery, being held in tiny tanks & only being fed if they do tricks. One dolphin sells for $150k. This is the true reason for the hunt - greed!
