Protests Grow as Japanese Fishermen Massacre Dolphins
Japanese fishermen trapped a herd of 250 bottlenose dolphins in nets and worked for 4 days to kill the dolphins for their meat turning waters blood red in Taiji, Japan. Witnesses were horrified to watch dozens of dolphins being herded into a tent to emerge stacked on skiffs for transfer to the town's butcher. Fifty-two of the dolphins were separated to be trained in marine parks but the remaining dolphins were killed. The process has been taking place since last weekend, with only one small group of dolphins left alive. Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told reporters that dolphin fishing was within complete accordance of the law, but criticism has come from the US Ambassador, the British Ambassador and the Australian Environment Minister.
