Risso meat sells for about ¥1,900 per kilogram at the local supermarket. And the villagers are deeply and stubbornly proud of their centuries-old tradition, whatever Hollywood says.

This is awful news. If only we could make them understand it is wrong they are intelligent and frankly screw their tradititon. it would be great to help the dolphns go elsewhere. That would be wondeful....Wish we knew how.
