The dolphin hunters of Taiji have driven yet another pod of 20-25 pilot whales into, “The Cove” in Taiji, Japan. This will be the third pod of pilot whales since the start of the dolphin hunting season September 1st. The drive today was grueling and cruel as the dolphins panicked in the stormy seas and threw themselves on the rocks and on the beach as noted by the Save Japan Dolphin Monitors on Twitter and on Facebook

According to Sea Shepherds Cove Guardians there dolphins will be held for at least 2 days before the slaughter takes place.
Taiji: The Fisherman’s union doesn’t slaughter on Saturdays. This pod will be held for 2 days until Sunday. Current is rough due to Typhoon.
