Bloody, but legal slaughter of dolphins in Japan (11 pictures) Warning: Some photos might be disturbing!)

Activists from environmental group Sea Shepherd streamed live footage of the dolphin capture in the village of Taiji.


Every year the fishermen of Taiji corral hundreds of dolphins into a secluded bay, select a few dozen for sale to aquariums and marine parks, and stab the rest to death for meat. The town’s fishermen defend the hunt as a cultural tradition.

WARNING: SOME OF THE FOLLOWING IMAGES MIGHT BE DISTURBING!
