Please end the cruel dolphin hunts in Japan. The Taiji dolphin hunt takes place in Taiji, Wakayama In Japan every year from September to March. Dolphins are chased into a small cove and butchered in the most horrific and cruel way imaginable. The hunters have huntedmany species of dolphins such as bottlenose, False killer whale, Pantropical spotted dolphins, Pacific white sided dolphins, Short-finned pilot whales, and Striped dolphins. This has to stop because if they keep hunting dolphins, they wipe out the entire population in Japan. For example many years ago, they have captured a small pod of orcas also known as killer whales to sale them to aquariums and slaughter them for meat.
