More dolphins slaughtered in Taiji, Japan

Whale and Dolphin Conservation report that on Sunday 23rd November 2014, in Taiji Japan, a pod of approximately 16 Risso’s dolphins were driven into the killing cove and 11 were slaughtered for their meat.

The WDC comments:

"The dolphin drive hunts are extremely cruel, involving the exhausting and traumatic driving from the open ocean that can separate mothers and calves and other family groups, to confinement in a netted cove where the dolphins are crudely slaughtered. Last year, at least 834 dolphins were killed in the drive hunts, and 158 taken alive into captivity. So far this 2014-2015 season and of a total allowable quota of 1,938 dolphins, 198 dolphins have been slaughtered and 11 have been taken alive into captivity."

Sad news and pointless slaughter of these wonderful creatures.
