Taiji Continues their barbaric actions
Many of these dolphins frantically tried to escape the brutal hands of the killers as they became entangled within the nets. One dolphin that was trapped under the net for over ten minutes and then never resurfaced.
A total of 13 dolphins were taken for a life of captivity and placed in the Taiji harbor pens.
Thrashing and screams echoed above the killing cove as the remaining pod of 24 dolphins was slaughtered. As the killing had ended, the thirteenth captive dolphin was taken from the cove via sling. This juvenile witnessed their family members being slaughtered one by one before being taken from within the cove to the harbor pens. The bodies were hidden under tarps and taken to the butcher house.
