A Whale of a Controversy


Japan's dolphin-hunting industry gets skewered in The Cove, a just-released documentary by director Louie Psihoyos. But after this year's setbacks at the International Whaling Commission's annual meeting, dolphins aren't the only marine mammals that are in trouble.
H/t Wagga!

MURST to ask what is that, a dolphin, or whale. It is sickening either way.

edgar said...

Seriously, is that top pic a dolphin?

Brave film makers... truthtellers.

I just read the article, thanx wagga. Those animals are so beautiful, it's heart rendering to see them slaughtered for food.

edgar said...

rendering, rending? whatever.

Less meat...more whales...

Sad story.

these picture are really impacting. Japan needs to stop this kind of practices because they are really endangered these species. I hope that the government does something to change this atrocity.
