#Tweet4Taiji Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians: Pilot whale family being slaughtered in the killing cove right now 10:27 PM – 27 Sep 2014

The killing of cetaceans in Taiji, Wakayama Prefecture, Japan has commenced since September 1, 2014. A number of pods of dolphin species’ have been slaughtered; and tonight a pod of pilot whales who have been held captive in the cove without food or shelter from battering winds and currents are being slaughtered. Two members of their pod were taken captive two days beforehand. These lucky survivors will be starved, ‘trained’, and sold on to the highest bidders. The rest of their trapped and traumatised family are being slaughtered as I type.

Cove Guardians are on the ground and livestreaming as the slaughter continues. They bear witness to the atrocity of cetacean slaughter in this small town’s isolated cove in Japan. We must all tell the world of this brutal practice, one shrouded in secrecy, subterfuge and lies. This is not about subsistence fishing – this is a money-making operation, geared towards captivity and profit.
