Poor Japan, It will be a very long time until the country is "whole" again. Such a shame. My heart goes out to the people of Japan. Such a tragedy for any nations to endure.
Also what is horrifying is that animals in the Ocean are still being hunted and killed everyday. Dolphins, whales, sharks, tuna you name it, and someone, somewhere is pulling something out of the sea.
When eating seafood, please be sure to ask your retailer or restaurant if they are purchasing from ecofriendly resources. Its important we take a good look at what seafood we are eating.
The dolphins held captive at the Cove ( 24 reported ) have all died on the sharp rocks due to the swells of tsnami. The fishermen of the Cove didn't even have the brain capacity to set those animals free during a natural disaster. Instead the dolphins endured more suffering at the hands of their captors.
A compassionate farmer would let his cattle go if there was a fire, but no, not these guys. They just do not care about these animals. They are dispensable beings to these men.
Come September 2011 hopefully things will have changed at the "Cove".
Or maybe mother nature can shake up Taiji, just enough to crumble the rock separating the secret killing cove and the public beach. Hurting no one, just crumbling the rocks that construct the Cove.
If you can, please reach out to the animals in this situation that need help. There have been some tweets and facebook mentions that all the animals that survived the tsnami will be gased to death in the upcoming days.
Im not sure where this info came from or if it is even true, but if it is.....is there no end to the torture these animals must face?
