They’re Slaughtering Dolphins in Japan Again

This retweeted tweet just landed in my box:

So, they’re slaughtering dolphins in Taiji, Japan again.

The green things on the beach in this photo are the tarps.

If you’ve seen the movie “The Cove,” you know what this is all about.  It’s about a dolphin slaughter that takes place annually in a little town in Japan called Taiji.  Taiji is on a small cove.  The “fishermen” drive the dolphins into the cove, trap them and then slaughter them.

This is one of those things that almost hurts physically to think about.

    I’m with you. I didn’t even attempt to watch it. Knew I wouldn’t be able to stand it.
