Dolphins are incredible creatures. They are bright, intelligent and cute. So, why do we kill them and sell them on as meat? I know why: money. The meat from dolphins sells for hundreds of pounds, and some people think it’s worth it. These people don’t care that they are hurting these helpless animals and the feelings of others.

A lot of companies have dolphin-free tuna, and in many cases their products even carry a certificate on the tin. However, be carful as some are fake. If you love dolphins or just care, you need to be made aware of this. Alternatively, if you have a friend who is then please make them aware of this. Those responsible for killing dolphins place “no trespassing” signs up so that people don’t find out the truth…

In spite of these animals being loved very much, there are some who just want to slaughter these poor creatures, and this happens in mainly one place now, though it once happened in other places, too. The location of this ongoing atrocity? Japan.

First of all, dolphins are lured into a cove on the coast of Taiji and captured, often fastened to boats by their tails. Several of these vessels have long sticks attached, which hunters use to creating a wall of sound that dolphins are afraid of. In fear, as they are attempting to swim away from the commotion, nets will be dropped to trap the dolphin when they are in a certain position. Then, trainers will come to pick out certain live specimens for captivity.

Unfortunately, those not initally chosen are attached to smaller boats and separated from their children to be killed with a weapon known as a sphere. The victims of this cruel blade are stabbed and left to bleed to death, before been dragged into the awaiting boats. Incredibly, the people of Japan, and indeed the world, are not generally aware this is even happening, regardless of claims from fishermen content to continue honouring this barbaric and unethical tradition.

One deception concerns the pretence of dolphin being served as whale meat, so that when a customer thinks they are buying is whale meat it may not end up being the case at all. Some changes have been made, such as in Japanese schools, where dolphin meat was once given to pupils free of charge. While this particular detail has since been rectified, many feel a lot more could be done to end this trade.
