Japan's annual slaughter of small whales and dolphins is increasing, the mass slaughter of up to twenty thousand. The method by which they are killed is gruesome. "Rods are hammered into dolphins spinal cords to paralyze them,and then they are dragged by their tails to the butcher house.
The majority of the world is unaware this is happening.
During the hunting season, pods of small whales and dolphins are herded into the tiny cove by fishermen in small boats and then are brutally slashed and killed with lances and knives. More than 20,000 of these intelligent and social animals are being slaughtered each year and their meat is being sold as food in Japan. A few will be kept alive to be sold into the captive whale and dolphin industry, where they may suffer for years.
Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) and Greenpeace are reported to have revealed that Tesco PLC, a large UK retailer has been linked to products from Japan's controversial hunting of whales and dolphins.
PLEASE HELP THESE POOR INNOCENT DOLPHIN AND WHALES FROM BEING FOOD IN JAPAN
