I just do not understand this kind of madness of killing and torturing animals for entertainment. Sadly this happens in many countries. Dolphins are such sweet creatures and generally very friendly to humans. This barbaric act must stop at once. I wonder how humans will feel if animals do the same to them (but animals will never do it as in many ways they seem to be more evolved than humans),

Signed but as usual 1000 just aren't going to be enough to make any difference whatsoever. This needs enormous petitions and even then there is no guarantee something will be done. Look at what happens to cats and dogs in China and Korea. How many petitions have we signed, and what difference has it made???
 

Cheryl B. (206)

Am I really seeing only 149 signatures... mine will make it 150? I am absolutely astonished there are so few that have voiced their objection to the " killing field" taking place in Japan. The albino baby was separated from his or her mother. The mother, in deep distress, killed herself by going down deep into the water and not coming up for breath. Apparently this is not an unusual act for Dolphins and probably other mammals. No doubt the little albino, named "Angel", will be sold at a high price. According to the guest on Jane Valez Mitchell today, it was today that the killing started. This deeply inhumane and painful execution of the Dolphins left will resume tomorrow. Perhaps this petition came in late. In any event, I am finding it hard to believe there are so few signatures. The jerk posting the dating service here is without a soul.

Signed and noted and I have signed several other earlier petitions too.I intend to write to the Japanese Ambassador in London and tell him just what I think of his so called civilsed country and that I will not buy another item made in Japan~change only happens when you hit them where it hurts! and the more critical exposure there is the better.We may not be able to save these poor animals now,although I note that Caroline Kennedy has been invited to see how 'humanely!' they will be killed!~ but we should start to build a really big campaign against the next one now,with Japans economy in the doldrums and an escalating row with China they need all the friends they can get!We can't give up!

I have no respect for a Country, which i have or should say, had, respect for..Your fisherman act like savages, who become happier with every dolphin captured or killed. This has become a stain on Japan & has ruined the perception as Japan, as a honorable Country. Stop separating calves from their mothers & turning the seas red, with the blood of innocent dolphins.

Here we go again, one I could cry one's heart out. With this news received again, this year starts sadly again. Just look at all these protests that repeat themselves annually, just look at all the actions of Ric O'Barry's/Save Japan Dolphins' on behalf of these lovely and noble beings {the Cove the movie was released in 2009, if I remember it right}, but these fishermen just won't listen! Why, what would cure their blindness and deafness to the unnecessary cruelty and suffering they have been causing these poor cetaceans for tens of years in a row?! How can the people of Taiji live on knowing the dolphins bleed nearby while they are just looking on?! If of animals they don't love dolphins, whom can they love?! If not such unique, gentle, intelligent creatures? Hurting these dolphins is an act of barbarism - period.

The Japanese government should be ashamed of themselves for lying to the world and their own people. many Japanese do not know that this is so bad, as the coverage has been controlled. This must end now. I sobbed like a child when I found out that the mom dolphin of the albino baby killed herself after they were separated. Ho can they sleep at night knowing the horrors they have committed?

Thank you Cher for posting this (I've signed umpteen petitions for this cause, but somehow missed this one till today !! Noted, Signed and commented ........... "Let's call a spade a SPADE - no more "political niceness" - FISHERMEN catch FISH (either to eat or to return unharmed to where they came from) !!! Dolphins aren't fish !!! Sooner or later people will come to their senses - will not want to see captive dolphins or eat dolphin meat! In the meantime these so-called "fishermen" need to plan ahead and find another occupation - THE SOONER THE BETTER !!! These dolphins do not even "belong" to Japan - they are just "passing through" their waters - they "belong" (if you can "own" an animal) to the WHOLE WORLD and the majority of the rest of the world wants them protected for future generations to enjoy !!!!
Every year I say to myself "If I can just live long enough to see the hunting of wolves, seals and dolphins STOPPED ..... I can leave this earth peacefully, knowing I've achieved my greatest goals" but each year there is another species added to my list, another goal to reach ...... I guess they'll have to "take me" still kicking and fighting !!!!!!!!
