Rare Albino Dolphin captured at Taiji Cove

December 9, 2014

 The Mail Online in the UK reports that a rare albino dolphin has been captured by Japanese fishermen and could be sold for up to £300,000 to be displayed in captivity.

 

The fishermen killed 11 other dolphins in a shallow cove in Taiji, Wakayama, Japan, but put the albino dolphin into a small holding pen where the dolphin will be fed  dead fish and and trained to interact with humans.

 

Whilst the albino dolphin was at least spared its life, clearly it should be able to live in wild and should not be taken into captivity and sold for profit. Stop the slaughter in Taiji now!
