To capture or even kill These wonderful, trusting creatures is about as cruel as mankind can get. And they've shown themselves pretty inventive over the centuries as far as cruelty to animals is concerned. But it should it must be stopped.

Kennedy Tweet Sparks Global Outrage Over 'Cove' Slaughter

'

On Tuesday, fishermen in Taiji, Japan, killed 40 dolphins and captured 52 for sale to aquariums.
'
A State Department spokesperson today issued a statement in support of Ambassador Kennedy's tweet. "The U.S. does remain committed to the global moratorium on commercial whaling, and we are concerned with both the sustainability and the humaneness of the Japanese dolphin hunts," said Marie Harf. "We have been very clear that this is our position, and we remain concerned about it. And the ambassador was expressing our view that we’ve made public for a long time."

'

If dolphins could tweet, many would surely be writing some version of “Thanks @CarolineKennedy for trying to save our lives” over the weekend. On Jan. 17, Kennedy, just two months into her job as the U.S. ambassador to Japan, sent shockwaves around the world by tweeting against the slaughter of dolphins in the cove at Taiji, Japan. “Deeply concerned by inhumaneness of drive hunt dolphin killing,” Kennedy tweeted. “USG (U.S. Government) opposes drive hunt fisheries.”

'The blue cove in Taiji turns BLACK
'
From  Cornwalls Voice For Animals
10:05 AM

Please share this with all your media contacts world wide ………
'
A most horrid night – never have I seen so many dolphins Pauline – there must be at least 250 netted in the cove, 5 pods of dolphins, 4 certainly from the same family as all Bottlenose but driven in separately in 4 drives as this massively huge family must have split during the drive -  and then horror of horrors, the killing banger boats were bringing in a 5th, Spotted dolphins !!!

It was a multi million dollar day for them – will be held now 20 hrs until captive selection of those fit for a lifetime of captivity, the rest of the not so pretty in their eyes will then slaughtered.

Among the first large family of bottlenose dolphins was something so rare, never have I seen before – have a look at the photo from the Ric O'Barry's  Dolphin Project Projecthttp://dolphinproject.org/ who's team are also in Taiji as always ….… Yes, an albino dolphin ! She/he will most certainly be taken for captivity !

I gave up watching while the 5th pod of dolphins ( spotted dolphins ) were being driven to the cove, it was then 4:30 am and as I slept the killers & trainers were hoisting dolphins out of the ocean pens and moving them to three locations in Taiji where there are captives – making room for the many they will take for captivity tonight …….

Cove Guardian leader, Mel said that in the three years she has been there documenting the slaughter & captivity – she has not witnessed anything like this or seen so many dolphins in the cove.  Not even in the making of the film THE COVE were there this many dolphins taken in one day !

These people are the most evil on this planet – They will wipe out entire species at this rate with the only care being the value of the captive, their toxic meat being the byproduct.

This disgustingly vile live dolphin trade business must end – governments everywhere like here in the UK must make it illegal to have live dolphins & whales in captivity. This is the ONLY way these species will be saved.

With every one killed, physically or emotionally by death or captivity, we deny future generations not yet born. A dolphin may have up to 16 babies during her lifetime –  multiply that by the what I estimate to be at the least, 250 dolphins in the cove right now alone – this is beyond mass murder – the numbers are obscene !

It is THE ULTIMATE CRIME AGAINST NATURE !

From the Cove Guardians

Killers have had a multi million dollar day and as I type it continues – a massive family of Bottlenose dolphins, babies, juveniles and an albino - were driven in FIVE separate DRIVES to the harbour of Taiji  I can easily estimate well over 200 dolphins will be held for about 20 hrs until the brutal captive selection and then the slaughtering of the unwanted, will take place tomorrow.

    Taiji is blacker than I have ever seen .   http://livestream.seashepherd.org


Please notify all the media you know about this and ask them to help expose this massive wiping out of dolphin families !

'

Since then, regional dolphin populations have shown a greatly increased rate of respiratory problems known to result from exposure to crude oil.
