Japan dolphin slaughter: Hunters erect screen to hide killing
A group of dolphins trapped by Japanese fishermen were killed on Tuesday (January 21), after fishermen herded them onto the shore in a cove in central Japan.
At least 30 dolphins, trapped in the now infamous Taiji cove since Friday (January 17), were seen being driven by fishermen using nets and boat engines towards a killing area.
Fishermen waiting in the shallows, some in wet suits, wrestled the dolphins into submission and tied their tails with ropes to stop them from escaping.
