The time has come once again for the mass slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan. Bottlenose dolphins are the prime target, and their highly-toxic meat is considered a delicacy. The fishermen who conduct the slaughter lure the dolphins into a blocked-off cove from which there is no escape. They then spear the dolphins until they take their last breaths and sink down below, never to be seen again.
The Japanese government has the ability to condemn this bloody event, and punish those who are participating in the slaughter. But thus far — with tens of thousands of dolphins killed in the last few years — they have done nothing about it.
Sign the petition asking the Japanese government to prohibit the dolphin slaughter once and for all.
Dear Prime Minister Shinzō Abe:
I am appalled that you have continued to allow the dolphin slaughter that takes place in Taiji starting every September. Every year thousands of dolphins are slaughtered by Japanese fishermen in order to keep the fish populations plentiful and to sell the dolphins' meat. The fishermen employ brutal methods for killing the dolphins. When the slaughter commences, they lure the dolphins into a cove from which they cannot escape. They then throw spears at the dolphins and stab them.
Some of the dolphins are taken to zoos and aquariums where they will live out the rest of their lives in captivity.
Population control is simply no excuse to brutally murder these beautiful and majestic creatures. I find it appalling the dolphin slaughter has been allowed to continue for this long and beg you to reconsider your support of it. Please cease to support this inhumane act.
We need to advocate for these animals if we hope to end this disgusting act of violence before any more precious dolphins are killed for no good reason.
