Video: Australians join battle to stop brutal dolphin slaughter in Japan

Dolphin protectors came to the cove in Taiji, to expose the brutal killing the mammals. People from various countries, including Australia, joined protectors from Japan.

It is full hunting season and Japan’s law protecting mammals does not cover dolphins, since they are characterised as fish.

Opponents of the slaughter are taking the local governor to court over this wrong interpretation.

They also say that under Japanese law, “no person shall kill, injure, or inflict cruelty on animals without reason, ” and that this is being violated.

Every year 20,000 dolphins and small whales are killed.

International pressure is still needed to put an end to the cruelty.

Viewers are warned that the scenes below can be distressing.
