This is totally unacceptable and horrifying!! I'm outraged that this is going on in Taiji, Japan. The fishermen that murder these beautiful creatures must STOP this supposed tradition. Japan, stop ignoring this and take action NOW!!
I wanted to swim with dolphins but not anymore this is so sad!
I have been so lucky to be able to swim with wild dolphins in Va Beach and they are beautiful and gentle creatures. I am so outraged that the treatment and slaughtering of these beautiful, innocent creatures. Please invite the world to stop this cruelty and spread the word on what is going on in Japan for our entertainment! Sick.........
Makes me sick to my stomach to see people buying tickets to see these amazing creatures in captivity. Do they not feel compassion towards them? Theyare killing them slowly nd supporting that. Shame on them! They deserve to be in their natural habitat & to be free!! Lord who sees everything will make sure these sick fucks pay!
I am in Canada. I am so sick to my stomach after seeing what's happening to our BEAUTIFUL Dolphins! They Think its play time when they see Humans cause that's how close and that how they Relate to us Humans.
Why is our humans so cruel, have humans lost all emotions and feeling for anything, parents need to show better teachings to their children, than this awful way of life, God created all species, not just humans, please teach young the real way nature is suppose to be. not this cruelty. heartless way ,pray for understanding of life.
por que son como ninos metidos en el cuerpo de un delfin por que son una creacion de Dios hermosos e inteligentes, y por que los AMO!
They are not ours to mess with, LEAVE THEM ALONE to enjoy their own lives. Respect these intellegent and beautiful creatures. Love and peace
Dolphins are here on this earth for a REASON. BY SAVING THE DOLPHINS, WE ARE ALSO SAVING OURSELVES.
It is with the strongest condemnation that I feel obligated to write to you about in respect of the treatment of dolphins in Japan. Please would you take a moment to watch the following video at this link, the content of which you may not have been previously aware of: http://thecovemovie.com/WatchTheTrailer.htm.
In the video you will see clear irrefutable proof of the most hideously cruel live butchering of dolphins, whose carcasses are then further...
In the video you will see clear irrefutable proof of the most hideously cruel live butchering of dolphins, whose carcasses are then further butchered and sold as 'whale' meat to various food distributors, to end up in supermarkets, falsely labeled.
The mass killing of these beautiful, intelligent and harmless species is yet another scar on the international image and indeed reputation of Japan, and the Japanese Government. It is quite possible that the majority of Japanese people do not even know about this vile crime and if they did, would be as horrified as anyone else.
It is difficult, if not impossible, to watch the video and not feel totally enraged, hugely disappointed and revolted that in this day and age, a nation such as Japan can permit such an indecency and crime.
In closing, may I point out that the agony and suffering of these creatures is plain to see, and yet the individuals involved in this repugnant atrocity show no mercy and no sorrow.
The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of human crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.
I trust you will take immediate action to raise this issue with your Government ministers, and those that should be acting in the prosecution of those involved and that this activity will be outlawed immediately in Japan. In the meantime I am raising a campaign on Facebook.com and signatures will be sent to your Embassy in further protest.
This matter will not 'go away' and myself and many, many other people will not rest until this vile and unnacceptable practise is stopped for good.
Of course, neither myself or anyone else holds you or your staff, nor the majority of decent Japanese people in any way responsible for this matter but clearly, those who are responsible must be brought to justice, and this act must not be repeated in 2013, nor at any other time in the future.
Wishing yourself, your staff and their families Christmas good tidings, and that 2013 will be a happier year for Japan - not least the dolphins and whales that your countrymen remorselessly and illegally persecutes.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
