Stop slaughtering Dolphins in Taiji

    1. Petition by

      Ashley Mei

 

A small town named Taiji in Japan has a very dark secret. They secretly slaughter dolphins behind a cove. In Tokyo, Yoshito Sengoku, the chief cabinet secretary, says that this is part of their long-held cultural tradition but it’s a lie. Most people in Japan don’t even know about this slaughter.

 

People, of course, love dolphins. They don’t want to eat them and it has high mercury in them. They notice that barely any people are buying it, so the government is covering this up and sells it as “whale meat” in markets. Also, feeding school children some dolphin meat at school is just wrong. The more they eat the dolphin’s meat, the more it’s like to eat poison.

 

Fishermens kill dolphins, about 23,000 a year. Each year, the water would be “red with blood of slaughtered dolphins.” Dolphins aren’t meant for food; they are different from other animals. They have smarter brains than us. Please sign this petition and tell them that they need to stop the slaughtering.
