The Cove still runs red

Taiji dolphin slaughter 2011: The carnage continues and on 18th January we received a message regarding Leah Lemieux and a team of Japanese activists who filmed the slaughter of over 40 beautiful striped dolphins in Taiji that day. Although those killing the dolphins had erected tarpaulin around the area in an attempt to cover up their carnage, the tarp slipped at one point, allowing Leah to film.

The scenes are harrowing — particularly as you can hear the dolphins frantically clicking and screaming as the murderers go about their ghastly business. Leah’s words that night were: “It’s been a terrible day here. Please help.”

Please see here for more on the current situation and for how you can help.
