(This is an image from the movie "The Cove" I got the image HERE.)
I watched "The Cove" this weekend. I cried the whole way through.
I did not know about this movie, but happened upon it in the documentary section of the video store. I knew it would be hard to watch, but I felt it was important to educate myself.
For those of you that don't know, this is a documentary about the killing of 100's of thousands of dolphins in Japan every year. It is not only that but also how the dolphins are full of mercury and they sell the meat disguised as whale meat (which is bad enough, but the killing of whales is regulated at least, the killing of dolphins is not.). Also did you know that dolphins in captivity are on anti acid because of stress? I went to Sea World, I saw the dolphins there and now I am ashamed that I contributed to that industry, I never will again.
What I saw in the movie will stay with me the rest of my life. More horrific than anything I have ever seen. I felt I needed to do a post to alert others that may not know about this.
Please go HERE and help in any way you feel to. The killing and capture of dolphins MUST be stopped as well as the killing of whales. When will man learn that the creatures on this planet deserve our respect? XOXO
