The film The Cove shows in graphic detail what happens to hundreds of dolphins hunted and killed every year by fishermen in Taiji, Japan. A few dolphins escape immediate death, only to be sentenced to a lifetime of confinement in amusement parks and aquariums. Whether theyre performing in a tank or used to tow tourists around in a swim with dolphins attraction, whether the facility is obviously sub-par or looks like a lovely place for dolphins to live, the greatest issue is whether they should be in captivity at all.

Humane Society International and The Humane Society of the United States believe the answer is a resounding no. No matter how big the box, it is still a boxkeeping animals who are intelligent, highly social, and far-ranging confined is simply inhumane.

2. THANK YOU, THE MORE PEOPLE SEE THIS, THE MORE
will be repulsed by the slaughter. I remember seeing a film of this slaughter, don't remember how long ago but it never left my mind. Thank you again.
