And just after that, we walked down to the water's edge, And this one poor dolphin it uh...

You could see it trying to get away, and it was swimming straight for us and the shore, and it actually made it over a couple of the nets.

And every time it came up for a breath, you could see all this blood coming up behind it.

And then you could see the last couple of breaths it took,

and then it went down and we never saw it again.

Dolphins are dying.

I'm sorry if you find this disturbing, but this is real, and it happens every year for six months straight. 23000 dolphins a year are killed in Taiji, Japan, to be sold for their meat; which is very high in mercury. Only you can help save Japanese Dolphins.

Here are some little things you can to to make a big difference- [link] [link]

what i find the saddest thing about it is, dolphins have saved human lives, and this is how we repay them? :(

To kill a dolphin is like to kill a human being to me.... Can't believe someone can do such a thing....

Why are they hunting them for their meat? With such a tremendous amount of mercury absorption, they would have been better off using them as industrial resource. :confused:

What a waste of precious elements.

Ugh, it's actually not only for the meat. The government is telling them it's for 'pest control'.

Very powerful image... that part of the film where the injured dolphin was trying to get away made me cry so much... T_T

I really hope this slaughter stops for good, it just isn't right.
