Stop the Japanese Dolphin Slaughter...
We need a complete ban on Japan's annual slaughter of small whales and dolphins In the quiet harbour town of Taiji, Japan. This is one of the most cruel and barbaric hunts in the world. During the hunting season, pods of small whales and dolphins are herded into the tiny cove by fishermen in small boats and then are brutally slashed and killed with lances and knives. More than 20,000 of these intelligent and social animals are being slaughtered each year. A few will be kept alive to be sold into the captive whale and dolphin industry, where they may suffer for years. This is something we the people should be standing up against, its disgusting, its wrong.... It has nothing at all to do with tradition its all about greed.. man's greed for more and it has to stop. I need your help, the small whales and dolphins need your help so please sign this petition and pass it along to friends and family. I will also enclose the address so that you may write to the Japanese government personally just like I have and will again once I reach my target on this petition. I thank you, with respect always.
