Countdown to #TheCove Telephone Protest
The attention on Taiji, Japan of Wakayama Prefecture is snowballing! Every year, sadistic fishermen herd thousands of dolphins into a cove of Taiji. Marine theme park dolphin trainers come from all over and choose the most aesthetically pleasing dolphins for their shows. The remaining mammals are speared and tortured in front of their pods (families) until all are dead. Many times, the dolphins that are being taken away are still around to witness this only to then be taken away for a lifetime of captivity.
