I read the Guardian newspaper this morning with growing anger and a sick feeling in my stomach. Titled ‘Flailing fins in emerald sea turned red – Japan’s dolphin hunt begins’ the report details the appalling slaughter of pilot whales and dolphins in Taiji where 100 bottlenose dolphins and 50 pilot whales will be slaughtered – to international condemnation. Over the next six months 2,300 dolphins will be killed by the town’s fishermen – out of Japan’s “quota” of 20,000 dolphins. Read more if you want to (the Guardian newspaper, 15/09/09) and see below – I can’t write any more.
