Taiji Dolphin slaughter on hold
Category : Uncategorized
I just read in the news this morning that Taiji’s annual dolphin slaughter is on hold, thanks to the publicity generated by the new movie The Cove. While there is nothing official as of yet, the media attention focused on the hunt has the fishermen staying away. It appears that now that the rest of the world is talking about the slaughter, the Japanese media has decided to cover it.
This is definitely good news in the short term, but let’s see what happens when every media outlet isn’t sitting in Taiji cove waiting to film the hunt.
