Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians Capture Risso’s Dolphin Drive November 19, 2012

Another pod of Risso’s dolphins approximately 15-20 found themselves surrounded and then driven to their death on October 19, 2012. Taiji, Japan  is a place where compassion towards dolphins is not common place.

The dolphin hunters of Taiji have been devoid of feeling as evidenced by their consistently cruel and inhumane treatment of dolphins since they began the dolphin drive as we know it today that began in 1969 (source)

The hunters are a small group of men that have gone to great lengths for many years to hide the horrible death and suffering they have wrought upon dolphins. Fortunately the dolphin/ocean activists will always expose the truth. In making The academy award-winning documentary film “The Cove” Ric O’Barry, Louis Psihoyos and their team used a James Bond style approach that allowed the film-makers to capture the ugly truth about what was happening to dolphins in Taiji, Japan. The world was shocked and the film gave way to an organized presence of volunteers each year during the drive season. From September to March,  Sea Shepherds Cove GuardiansSave Japan Dolphins Cove Monitors, independent volunteers and other organizations, are the watchful eyes for the dolphins recording and reporting on the terrible dolphin suffering.

Know matter how hard the dolphin hunters, and butchers have tried to hide this inhumane slaughter and capture, they cannot be careful enough. The truth will always be revealed.

The dolphin hunters are determined to continue the dolphin hunt and dolphin suffering indefinitely. At the same time dolphin activists whose ranks are growing exponentially everyday are equally as determined to end the dolphins suffering in Taiji forever. Each and every time the hunters pursue, and harm dolphins activists will be recording and broadcasting the truth about the inhumane treatment of dolphins in Taiji, Japan.
