The process was just too much to bear for this one pilot whale. It continued to barely swim on its back after family was slaughtered — at Taiji Japan.
Whales and dolphins are sentient and intelligent creatures who have strong family bonds and they feel pain at loss
After two of its family had been selected for training for human entertainment and the rest had been held in the Cove during stormy weather and those that were not cast out to sea or died in nets were brutally slaughtered this photo was taken of a pilot whale. For me this picture paints a thousand words.
It is not the dolphin/whale meat that keeps the barbaric Taiji drive hunting afloat but the live capture and training for human entertainment. That is why this pilot whale lost its family.
