Sorry but have these people heard of normal foods like vegetables, chicken and beef?

thats right they can kill so many of them for a year for "research"

What are they researching anyway

the flavours of dolphins :fiery: :mad:

I can't watch it.

Japan is one of the few countries killing whales, too, along with Iceland and I think Norway (if not Norway, another of the Scandinavian countries).

They use the "research" excuse for that too.

It was disturbing.
We're talking about a densely populated country that has little domestic agriculture and cattle though.
Exporting those things on a massive scale would put Japan's barely stable economy in jeopardy.
So they go to the sea.
As far as I know the dolphins that are extinct are in China, not Japan.

I'm disgusted but at the same time what do you expect them to do.
There isn't an unlimited supply of fish.
There isn't of dolphins either but as far as I can recall the Japanese haven't caused an extinction of a species since the Wake Island rail during WWII.

It's not the fact that they eat dolphin that bothers me (after all, what defines "normal" food?), it's the manner in which the dolphins are killed.

Just a reminder to everyone...think about his video next time you have a can of tuna :tape:

I agree with you though, Sam L, the video is graphic and distrurbing, but makes for interesting viewing. Thanks for posting

Yuck! And didn't even have to watch it to come to that conclusion.

I'm not going to single out Japanese. ANYONE who kills an animal in an inhumane way without sufficient reasoning loses ALL respect from me. I'm not talking about ants or something by the way. I'm talking about when people knowingly kill something and let it suffer, without a good reason. In my opinion they should be tried and convicted as if their victim was human.

It revolts me.

Hmm. Actually no - Japanese whaling industry exists today only as a national subsidy effort. It is not commercially profitable and whaling continues only as a result of rather bizarre regional politics and some sort of national defiance, rather than for any rational reason.

Agreed in principle. People oppose buying tuna cans because dolphins die on tuna nets - but why isn't anyone worried about the tuna??

I'm a meat eater... but at least I know where the meat I eat comes from and how they kill the animals. Those methods are just horrific, nothing should die like that.

Not when your friends own the farm you buy it from, know exactly how they're looked after, what they are fed and how they die.

What does the "prehistoric man" have to do with dolphins being tortured to death in the 21st century. Back then they had to kill animals to survive. They weren't mass-murdering dolphins to sell tons of their meat to Japanese restaurants and supermarkets for profit. Do you see the difference. :weirdo:

U probably ate meat B4 knowing your farmer friend, and will probably eat meat from other sources in the future. Nobody can control ALL the food they eat.

My point is that nobody is "torturing" the dolphins, they just kill them. I saw the video... they get the dolphins into a small area and slaughter them, but they don't torture for the PURPOSE of inflicting pain. They kill the dolphins to make money so they can live. Prehistoric man, killed animals so they could eat them to live. There really isn't a great difference.

Tell me then, how R U to capture that many dolphins and kill them humanely? Like where do you put them until you can kill them? Then how do you kill them nicely? How do you kill an animal with a knife in a gentle manner? Nobody was torturing the animals, they just slit their throats humanely.

You can't slit a dolphin's throat 'humanely'. There is no humane method of slaughtering cetaceans of any kind. They bleed to death and when they are removed from the water their backbones split. It's a slow and agonising death and morally indefensible.

Stop making false assumptions. You have no idea how long my family have been buying meat from that farm, where we eat out, or where we buy our food. My point was that I don't have to feel guilty watching videos like that one, or documentaries on TV going undercover inside giganic poultry farms where the animals never even see daylight before they're sold for 1p each to KFC. I would never knowlngly eat anything that had been mistreated.

No that is true, I have no idea.

And No, you don't have to feel guilty about it, and neither do I. I know that most of meat I eat comes from places who don't focus on the treatment of the animals they slaughter, but I don't feel guilty about it any more either. There are other things to focus on.

Well...not to excuse brutality, but it's not like dolphins enjoy a moral high ground...they're known from playing with their prey and killing other marine mammals (porpoises and seals) for seemingly no reason. Gangs of bottlenose dolphins often beat up or rape individual females, sometimes from smaller species.

"Seals would club our babies if they could"

They do indeed. Then again dolphins are wild animals that need to hunt to survive and playing with prey is often used as a method of teaching hunting skills to the young, and honing the skills of the adults. It's not necessarily cruelty for the sake of it.

Dolphins can be big bullies to each other too. Horny individuals of both sexes often try to force themselves on others, male or female, young or old, even humans. Older members of the group often whack them for their bad behaviour and protect the victims so you could argue that there is a dolphin moral code.

Anyway, none of that excuses human brutality towards them. I thought we were supposed to be the civilised species.

It's a shame, but there are countless animals throughout the world that are abused from neglect to intentionally torture. I do hope to those of you who are revolted by this, realize you can do something about it. Raising awareness that animal cruelty does exist and it does in every community and every city around the world, it's not just a few Japanese fishermen. Flyers are a great way to reach a message, along with raising funds for animal abuse shelters, writing to state representatives and senators for stricter laws to put in place against animal cruelty.

just my thoughts. :)
