@TeacherX Just because something is legal does not make it right.. and this is very wrong on so many levels. Their waters? Yes of course Their dolphins? No., certainly not. Dolphins a highly migratory.. they are just passing through and should be celebrated not murdered. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-24756168

@anbihn>You run a fish farm you need to control dolphin. Some people concern because there is too much blood in the sea but the animal die almost instantly anyway.

What utter BS. This drive hunt cannot be justified on any level.

It is horrifically cruel. The dolphins often suffer for days trapped in The Cove before being subjected to one of the cruelest deaths possible. http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/10888705.2013.768925#.Ut9107TFKUl http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn23380-new-japanese-method-for-killing-dolphins-is-inhumane.html#.Ut915bTFKUm

Many dolphin species are threatened with extinction. Some species have been almost exterminated in Japanese waters, yet the Japanese government still issues permits for more to be killed. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-24756168 http://www.eia-international.org/wp-content/uploads/EIA-Toxic-Catch-report-FINAL.pdf

The meat is full of mercury, poisoning those that eat it

Modern science has shown that dolphins are exceptionally intelligent, self aware and emotional. Their brain to body mass quotient is second only to human beings leading to calls for them to be given special status. India has already given them this 'non-human persons' status http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-24756168

Now.. what is your justification for this mass murder?
