Stop taking dolphins from the Taiji cove in Japan.

It is undoubtedly true that Taiji, Japan is ground zero for the live dolphin trade. Each year hundreds of dolphins are herded into coves by using drive herding to force them in the bay. Nets are then drawn up over the mouth of the cove to prevent their escape. The dolphins are then hand picked by dolphin trainers from all over the globe to be taken from their natural habitat and spend the rest of their lives in captivity, away from their pod. Worse than captivity is what happens to the dolphins that are not chosen; they are stabbed or drowned to death in the very same cove, forced to spend the last few terrifying moment of their lives swimming in a cove red with the blood of their families. I am asking you to no longer buy dolphins from this disgusting place, for without the repeated business of the marine parks, this slaughter would not be economically possible.

      Whales and dolphins are not only highly intelligent and sentient, with rich emotional lives and strong family connections, but they simply cannot be humanely confined. It's no life. The enclosures are too small in any facility, but especially small ones like Marineland and Game Farm. I also oppose their capture because it cannot be managed without cruelty.

      this is disgusting, horrible and cruel. It needs to stop immediately! Dolphins are such beautiful creatures and this should NOT be allowed to not even one dolphin. I fail to understand how the Japanese people and government can tolerate such cruelty. This needs to change.
