Dolphin Slaughter in Japan.
I am writng to convey my disgust at the brutal slaughter and capture of Dolphins in Taji and other places in Japan. You feed the meat which is toxic to your children and much of it is just used as fertilizer. What a terrible waste of a long lived intelligent, sentient creatures life! This is done as a foil for the captive trade whereby you capture and fly dolphins in crates to destinations around the world, for human entertainment. It is a multi million dollar industry for Japan.
These are highly intelligent and sentient mammals and suffer enormous!y in captivity.

The world is watching you Japan. My family buy nothing made in Japan, shall never visit your country and will not be watching the Olympics. Please consider ending this terrible, cruel and barbaric practice. The human race has evolved and now knows better than this. You need to show the world that you are a civilized nation. Thank you.

Horrible and inhumane slaughter of innocent living beings, Taiji, Japan.
Here is the letter, sent to the Japanese government, which I and my family support for more than 100%. Please read: Dear Governing Body of Japan,
At a time when all eyes of the world are on you, and the sustainability and humaneness of the dolphin hunt are being exposed, it’s crucial that you use your power to stop the cruel and unpopular slaughter of entire dolphin families.
The barbaric and tortuous treatment of intelligent animals is viewed by most as a sin against the natural world. While other counties have laws against the inhumane slaughter of fellow creatures of this Earth, Japan is eliminating entire pods of dolphins at an exponential rate. The result – the rest of the world is looking at Japan with great disgust.
As resistance to the world’s request to end dolphin slaughter continues, efforts are being made to prevent your country from hosting the 2020 Olympics.
Additionally, you are poisoning your own people. It’s a known fact that dolphin meat is high in mercury and is poisonous for human consumption! Do you want to be responsible for home-grown illness and potentially death among your citizens?
Please be reminded the world is watching you 24/7. Thanks to live recordings streamed by the Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians, the cruel and painfully slow Japanese dolphin slaughter is being viewed in households everywhere.
I hope you will consider the requests and expressions of concern, and do the right thing for your people and the world. Please end the slaughter of dolphins starting now!
