    Taiji Hell on Earth

    Right now in Taiji Japan - a pod of Pilot whales and a pod of bottle nose dolphins are currently being held overnight in the "infamous "killing cove - they await their brutal fate tomorrow morning. Trainers will go in and pick the pretty dolphins and whales - who will all go into captivity - stolen from their ocean home and sent to live in a concrete tank. There is babies and juveniles in these pods and as they have done before i am sure they will kill mothers or take them captive and toss the babies back to sea.
    The ones who are not picked for captivity will once again die in a brutal and horrific death - they will be stabbed to death in front of each other! Already some of the pilot whales are trying to escape or commit suicide by throwing themselves onto the rocks in the cove . In the picture above you can clearly see one of the killers on the rocks trying to prevent them from doing so.
    Once again i am truly saddened by what is happening now in Taiji - I would like to know when CNN and other international news leaders will take a crew to Taiji and film these atrocities for the world to see? This is one of many of the brutal happenings to our cetaceans in the world right now and no news team will go on the ground to film and ask why?
    When will the worlds governments get involved and express their disgust with Japan at what they do? Is it because the countries of the world are buying dolphins through Taiji for their marine parks?
    Once again CNN i implore you to get involved and help us stop this insane practice - that Japan would have you believe is TRADITION - we know this is lies and it is all about greed! There is so much dolphin and whale meat in freezers in Japan so clearly few are eating this toxic meat - which has been deemed unfit for human consumption.
    Please don't let these amazing sentient creatures who are well know for having saving humans die in vain, please report this get actively involved and help stop the madness before dolphins and pilot whales become extinct!
