200 dolphins await slaughter in Japan
January 20 , 2014
Over 200 bottlenose dolphins are soon to be slaughtered in the Taiji cove in Japan and the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is now attempting to focus the matter in the public eye.
According to CNN, fishermen recently brought about 250 dolphins into the cove and 37 of them have been separated from the group to be sold to aquariums. The process sounds unpleasant since two animals have already been slaughtered and the rest are expected to be killed soon enough.
"Many of the 200+ Bottlenose dolphins who are still in the cove are visibly bloody & injured from their attempts to escape the killers," Sea Shepherd stated.
The new US ambassador to the nation tweeted saying that she was "concerned by inhumaneness of drive hunt dolphin killing."
