Dolphin killing season starts in Taiji, Japan


The above picture is from Seashepherd.org showing the nets used to corral the innocent dolphins into the "killing cove" before being slaughtered or traded.

The practice of killing dolphins has been going on for years. The hunting season runs from September to March. During this time thousands of innocent dolphins will be slaughtered for their meat. Some spared and sold to aquariums for well over $100,000. This is one of the main reasons that this practice still exists.
