Unbelievable Methods With Which Dolphins are Being Killed

February 1, 2011

BIETIGHEIM-BISSINGEN, Germany, February 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Pictures
from the annual slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan have been circulating
the globe for years. One of the high points was the Oscar- winning
documentary, “The Cove,” released about one year ago, which covered the
dolphin capturing in Taiji. The film caused an international stir, but the
initial hope that the dolphin killings would cease following the film would
not come to fruition.

Now the truth is coming to light and the unbelievable methods with which
the dolphins are being killed. Since the film, the dolphin catchers have
tried everything to prevent more documentaries from being filmed. They work
strictly in secrecy. They pitch a new, bloodless and allegedly humane killing
method, which is designed to combat global criticism of the annual dolphin

This was disproved in January of 2011. The current brutality of the
dolphin killings in Taiji has been documented and the dolphin catchers’
well-kept secret has been unmasked – the killing method. The live dolphins
lying in the water are stabbed in the back of the head with a metal pole and
the wound is then closed with a wooden stick in order to prevent the blood
from spilling out and colouring the water in the slaughter cove red. The main
purpose of this method is to give the impression that the dolphins are being
killed bloodlessly and therefore according to humane standards.

However, the video recordings captured first-hand confirm the worst
fears. Contrary to the dolphin catchers’ claims, the dolphins do not die
within a few seconds. The documentary exposes the allegedly humane killing
method as a truly cruel procedure with the goal of deceiving the public.
