[The worst news. Please cooperate. ]
It seems to start a new killer whale show in Kobe City.
“The only killer whale show in western Japan is“ New Sumui ””
The proposed aquarium facility consists of Orcastadium, the only killer whale in Western Japan, two outdoor facilities, Dolphin Stadium, and Aqua Live.
“New Sumai”, the largest in western Japan, is aiming to open in 2023.
In Japan, 45 killer whales have been confined so far, 38 of them have been killed and 7 have survived.
Will you try to make money using killer whales?
How greedy is it?
The important point is where to bring the killer whales.
① Bring it from Kamogawa Sea World or Nagoya Port Aquarium, which currently confines killer whales. In that case, the family falls apart again.
② Newly import from overseas.
③ Capture in the name of academic purpose.
② and ③ are the worst.
There is a possibility that it can be crushed now.
The action should be to have the media, the Kobe City Council member, the Hyogo Prefectural Assembly member, local animal welfare organizations express their opinions and ally, and raise public awareness of the reality of killer whale shows and the world.
You might even want to screen the movie “Black Fish”.
Many people’s ideas and cooperation stop this plan.
If you have made a phone call or email, please collect information on this wall.
[61 drugs used for dolphins, disinfectant in the pool]
There were 61 types of drugs etc used for dolphins in an aquarium in Japan. Vitamin 5 types calcium agent 1 type feed (including micronutrients) 1 type eye drops 1 type Gastrointestinal 15 types liver medicine 1 type urine 1 type Antibiotic (antibacterial) 22 types Antifungal (mold) 1 type anti-inflammatory antipyretic analgesics 3 types anemia 2 types painkillers 3 types hemostatic agents 4 types Unknown 1 type
It is drugged. Because there are a lot of gastrointestinal drugs and antibiotics, You can see that dolphins have gastrointestinal illnesses and bacterial infections.
[Dolphin hunting begins from tomorrow. Skulls of dolphins]
Today, there are events around the world trying to protect dolphins. This is because dolphins hunting begins in Taiji, Wakayama Prefecture tomorrow. In Japan, Taiji [Japan Dolphins Day2019 @ Taiji] https://www.facebook.com/events/343972526267866/
And in Tokyo [Japan Dolphin Day Talk Event x Vegan Food] https://www.facebook.com/events/2241997412564773/
Many dolphins this year,
Caught, sold to aquariums around the world,
Killed and eaten by humans as whale meat.
The photo was taken by the Dolphin Project,
I was in the Taiji Town Whale Museum, Skulls of dolphins. Check out the FB page of the Dolphin Project again this year. I really appreciate them. https://www.facebook.com/RicOBarrysDolphinProject/
Dolphins were killed because they approached Japan.
It is the role of the Japanese to protect the dolphins living in Japan and the dolphins who visit Japan during the journey.
People all over the world are cheering on Japanese people who protect dolphins.
It may take time.
However, one day, let’s make a proud island that protects the dignity of dolphins and coexists gently.
Albi Deak (https://www.facebook.com/sea.mammals) made a great video.
There are really few Japanese people trying to stop dolphins. However, it is certain that more and more people are gradually raising their voices and starting to move. I am one of them.
Dolphins and whales that swim freely around the world are killed when they approach Japan.
Than those who care for kindness and ethics and want to protect the weak,
The reality is that there are overwhelmingly more people who care about their appetite and profits and violence against the weak.
But one day we will reverse this rate.
Old type people believe that violence against animals is a proof of bravery, proof of courage, tradition and culture.
But of course, violence against animals is a sneaky and obscene act, and traditions and cultures that enjoy bullying and violence against the weak are only shame.
By acting and causing a paradigm shift,
Protecting animals is proof of bravery, proof of courage, and a new tradition and culture.
One sunny day you spent with your family. You were suddenly caught by a strange group and your family were killed one after another in front of you. You were deprived of freedom and put in a cold jail.
A strange group member makes you remember a behavior you don’t understand. If you don’t do that, you won’t get food. When you do that, the group will be pleased with your hands.
For a long time that seems to be eternal, you get sick and repeat the same behavior and hurt yourself. The group sees you, joys, fools, or calls friendly. No one in the group will notice your suffering. Will not help
You can’t go where You want to go and You can’t meet the people You want to meet. On rainy days, windy days, hot days and cold days, You continue to be crazy in jail, but You can’t stop.
And you get older., but you can’t stop moving. You cry in the cold prison, remembering your family and nature with an uninterrupted consciousness.
But still, the group continues to see you.
One day, your consciousness disappears and your breathing stops.
The strange group will thank you, turn the flowers and make a memorial. The group then starts looking for a new “you”.
[Kyoto Aquarium Dolphin Maria Death Wrong Treatment]
Maria, whose mouth was tattered, died. Maria was deprived of life by human greed. Received life as a born slave at Kamogawa Sea World and was confined to the Kyoto Aquarium, and drugged. Maria was made profitable as an aquarium product. She was shown to meet the dolphin fan’s desire. The cause of oral disease was unknown from the beginning. And she just died. Having not cured and killed for years means that the treatment was wrong.
The veterinarian was unable to identify the cause, and was treating what seemed to be the same as an amateur who was treating while searching online.
A dolphin trainer? Veterinarian? , laughs, chats, and burns skin other than the wound.
I asked Kyoto aquarium “How many years Maria has been sick?” The aquarium responded “I don’t want to tell” , refused to disclose information.
With aquariums and people who like self-proclaimed dolphins,
People trying to free aquariums from confining and suffering dolphins,
Which is the dolphin ally?
The answer is clear.
Two veterinarians watched it through the Dolphin Project.
From the pics you sent me I can confirm that looks like an open dental abscess. In the pic n.4, it’s possible to recognise also the spill pus. The opening of the hole has almost clear margins, so it was present an infection for a long time. The condition of the teeth and gums is really complicated, it would need specific antibiotic treatment.
I think you’re right that this could a severe case of dental decay that has advanced to osteomyelitis and infection of the surrounding tissues, or possibly trauma leading to secondary infection. I would also consider cancer as a possible differential here. While it isn’t overtly tumorous, the jaw is clearly swollen internally in that area and the exposed tissues appear carcinoma-like to me. Oral cancer is not uncommon in captive dolphins and, while they are usually sublingual, squamous cell carcinomas can invade the jaw (though I’m not aware of a case that has been reported in this species). Laser therapy is a common treatment modality for oral/throat cancer, so fits the scenario. All speculation without more info of course.
In Yokohama Hakkeijima Sea Paradise contact lagoon aquariumIt is a very narrow water tank. There is a bottlenose dolphin with a deep bruise of flesh.
Seven years ago, it seems to have protected dolphins caught in the stationary net.Seven years ago, there were wounds. The wound is still reddish and can be visually confirmed that it has not healed. I asked the breeder, “Is it treated? Why is it not cured?”The vague answer was, “I’m applying a plaster, but the dolphins seem to be ugly, and the dolphins rub and scratch my body.”
Won’t heal for over 7 years.Generally I think it is an unusual situation.
If it is not the aquarium tank but the natural sea, what about?
The problems that arise from the difference between the natural world and bred dolphins are: <The problem of water quality> The water in this tank seems to use sea water, but also uses medicine.The dolphins have to stay in the narrow aquarium.
<Food Problems> Aquarium dolphins are fed frozen, low-nutritive fish.Supplements are given to supplement the nutrition.
<Problem of mind and body stress> Being stressed in a narrow aquarium has been stressed a lot for a long time.Immune ability is also considered to be falling.
It is thought that there is a possibility that it will not be cured because of various problems in captivity, but it would be appreciated if you could tell me if you knew anything.
Not only do dolphins get trapped in the aquarium for the rest of their lives, they lose freedom, but they can also prove to be one of the causes of various problems.
Dolphin hunt in Taiji starts from 1st september until end of february next year. There are many discussion regarding the dolphin hunt, however, no one actually seen the “REAL” dolphin hunts. I followed “A Day of the Dolphin Hunt in Taiji” 6:15am-1:57pm
Reported by Mineto Meguro, from LIB (Animal Liberator. net) I would be VERY happy if you could spread this page to as many people as possible. Hope that this chain of compassion, care and goodness towards all the animals.
6:15am On Facebook live: Leaving Dolphin hunt boat
This is on live image of Dolphin hunt boat from Taiji port.
Early morning at 6:00am, Dolphin hunt boats leaves in line to do the dolphin hunt. At around 12 boats
On the shore, the boats turns 180° looking for dolphins.
Dolphins are migratory they go thruou the Taiji shore on black current. Dolphins does not belong to Taiji town.
There are two main purposes of dolphin hunts
Sell the dead courpse (foods, tradition)
Sell the living dolphins (to aquariums, NOT tradition)
They make more money on LIVING sells.
Taiji and pro-hunts insists on tradition (dead ones) but actually what they really need is LIVING sells. LIVING sells can be sold to the aquarium, resort hotels, dolphins therapy, dolphins touching events, swin with the dolphins, etc.
Half of them are sold to overseas. Mostly to China. In the year 2000-2015 they sold to 12 countries – 216 to China, 36 to Ukraine, 35 to South Korea, 15 to Russia, etc.
Many preys are captured in Taiji port and Moriura bay.
Always at around 100-200 dolphins are captured in whole Taiji town.
The activisits are not only considering about the dolphin hunts. We also takes breeding seriously. Breeding is a very irrational acts to make living slaves or products, domestize the wild creatures just for our pleasure. Zoos and aquariums calls this as “Species Preservation”
Moriura bay in Taiji town is planning to construct a humongous-sized cetacean breeding bay
I followed the work of “Dolphin project” people in Taiji Amazing people who tries to help the dolphins and making records. Most of them are vegans.
In Japan, They mistakenly thinks that those activists are racists they only attack Japanese. They are only protecting dolphins. But actually it’s not.
They work in every part of the world such as USA, Mexico, Greece, Feroe islands, etc. Protecting every dignity and rights for the animals.
After 3 hours and a half of departure, it seems that they’ve found the dolphins. Gathering at one point in the sea.
Black smokes of the boats on horizon, once they found dolphins. Motors are full-throttle. Its hard to detect, but Dolphin project people finds it very fast.
They start the drive hunt formation from the opposite size from Taiji port.
Have you seen dolphins playing and swimming along the ship on TV? Hunters use their natural instinct of playfulness. They chase, capture, kill and eat the dolphins. Spear hunt – they stab harpoons to the dolphins back and kill.
Dolphins pods are made by their family and firends. They run away, helping the children or weaker dolphins by mothers and friends swim on both sides to protect.
9:56am Drive hunt
There are dolphin pods and all around them are fleets.
They are obstructing the dolphins to escape to the sea, and their fleet chase from the back.
They use “Bangers” its an iron rod with filled oil to bang with a hammer.
Roaring sound in the water. Dolphis use ultrasonic sound to communicate and to recognize around them. Bangers will confuse and take away those functions from the dolphins. They panic and try to run away from the sound.
Dolphins will panic, swin as fast as they can, that takes energy from them and unables them to breathe.
Some young male dolphins might be able to run away because they are stronger. But mothers who want to protect children or weak ones, they opt to stay even they can escape. Hunters knows very well about Dolphin’s compassionate behaviors.
10:26am COVE : Preparation for hunt
Hunt boat let dolphins towards the COVE.
Block the escape way to capture them all to the cove.
Cove is located 2 min. by car from Taiji port.
About the Cove
Before they were killing in the place nearby the car road and everybody can see the blood-covered ocean in there. Because of the movie “The Cove” and the activists work, they started to hide the killing. Nodaways, they take the dolphins to the smaller cove, that is hard to see. In the cove they do the selection and slaughter.
Those people are in this place.
1 Dolphin hunters Kill the dolphins and capture those to sell (living) ・ Drive hunt by boat ・ Chasing dolphins to with a small boat (net) ・ Prepare after dolphins comes to the back of the voce. ・ Entering the ocean, wearing wet suits to slaughter the dolphins.
2 Dolphin trainers They do the selections to sell to the aquarium, in othe words, selecting which dolphins to kill.
3 Activists Those who wants to help dolphins.
4 Lay people : Locals, tourists, etc.
6 Maritime Security Agency
On that day some National Research Institute of Far Seas Fisheries, Japan Fisheries Research and Education people came here too. ※National Research Institute of Far Seas Fisheries, Japan Fisheries Research and Education http://fsf.fra.affrc.go.jp/eng/index-e.htm
10:30am Dolphins are captured, some of them escaped.
Boats drove dolphins near the voce Hunters holding hammer to hit the banger.
Dolphin pod Boats are coming to the cove.
Small boats are placing some nets Net to capture dolphins not to escape from the cove.
Risso and bottlenose dolphins. Famous in the aquariums. Rissos can swin very deep. But he is panicking cant breathe well, depriving the energy.
Some dolphins escaped from the net. Great!
Dolphin boat turning with a black smoke. Motor full to do the drive hunt.
10:36 Hunters banging the bangers
Banger is a rod to make Bang-Bang sound.
Oil is filled inside the metal rod, the tip is larger to dissipate more sound. They put this banger into the water and by banging, dolphins wil panic. They catch and drive them by this sound.
The speed of the sound is 340m in the air but 1500m in the water, is much faster. The music and fireworks sound are too close to the dolphins, and diffuse inside the water tank and is tremendeous stress for the dolphins. We must know that it may be fun for the humans, but is very painful to the dolphins.
10:39 Again dolphins were taken into the cove but escaped.
10:40 Dolphins escaped (second time) the boat turns and chase them with a black smoke.
10:40 Facebook on live : Battle for the dolphins.
10:45,30 Again dolphins were chased into the cove. Dry, creepy sound of the bangers. More foreigners are watching than Japanese now. Dolphin projects are showing this during the hunt season on internet.
10:47 First net Total 3 nets. First net are placed between the shore and the boulders, once they placed this, the dolphins cannot escape anymore.
Second net are placed inside the first net to separate the pods. They turn the motor sound towards the dolphins to panic.
Third net are place inside the second, and in there they select and slaughter.
10:47.37 Some dolphins escaped. We cant see them. Maybe they are under the boat to escape. Boats are chasing the dolphins.
10:49.02 Again dolphins are taken back to the cove.
10:50.40 4th attempt to escape. Great !
10:51.43 This black-smoke boat are as if doing a war towards the innocent dolphins.
10:52.41 International Marine Resourse guys laughing at this scene.
10:53.57 Again, dolphins are chased down to the cove.
10:54.19 Hunters placing the first net to chase them completely into the net.
10:56.03 They placed a first net.
Dolphins captured They can’t escape anymore
Their destiny has determined – either be killed and eaten or be shown to amuse people for the rest of their lives.
10:57.22 Hunters chase with the motor sound, placing the second net.
10:58.55 Pod are coming back Seems they worry about their friends and families. (boats are still far away, they were not chased)
11:00:28 Second net placed, dolphins captured.
11.02.23 Hunters started to take away the first net. I wasn’t aware at that time but this was to chase more dolphins to kill at at once.
11:11 The dolphins outside of the net were chased
They were outside of the net, worrying about their families, they run away but again they were chased.
11:11 Fifth attempt to escape!
Again they escaped from the net.
I really wished that they would escape. So as everybody in the whole world watching this by Dolphin Project’s internet on-live.
11:14 Facebook on live : They were chased again.
They are trying to chase more dolphins who opted to stay because they care about their family and friends.
11:19 The rest of the pods were chased down.
They came to the cove. Their lives are over
11:23 Last pod to the third net
Threatening with the motor sound and bubbles, to chase them towards the third net.
11:32 Chasing another pods into the second net.
From the first net to the second making net smaller little by little.
Dolphins are panicked they stranded by themselves to the shore. Blowhole of stranded dolphins. Some dolphins jumpled and hit hardly to the wall.
11:34 Dolphin trainers came for the selection.
Dolphin trainers came to select the dolphins on boat. Today, there are three boats to transport living dolphins.
What will happen to the living sell dolphins?
Dolphin hunt starts, they will know the Dolphin’s type and if there is an order, they will communicate to the trainers and aquariums. Trainers comes on boat to the cove to select. They prefer female, pretty skin and quiet ones. Sex discrimination happens in here too.
They wear the wet suits to capture dolphins together with hunters. Those not selected will be killed or if they are over quotas, released. Babies and chilren cannot survive, of course. Human children cannot survive without family, neither.
Dolphin trainer put dolphins on stretchers tie them along the small boat. To capture then in many places in Taiji.
Activists are deperately begging not to kill them, the dolphin trainers on boat are laughing at them. They seem SO different then what we see at the dolphin show.
What happens to the dead corpse dolphins?
Due to the blood-covered cove became world-wide attention and criticized, and to avoid those shocking image, they now use Normay method to kill. Thrust the harpoon-like tool to the spiral of dolphins. Twist then to cut the spiral. After pulling the tool, they put cork-like lid to the wound part. They say its a “Humane” way, less pain but 1. Some dolphins could not die, some suffers more than 20 minutes or more. 2. Because they close the wound part with a cork, dolphins will drown by their own blood.
11:35 Slave for life or waiting to be slaughtered.
Dolphin trainers destined them to be a slave for their lives. Or the hunters will brutally kill them Dolphins has no idea No dolphins could go back to the ocean where they belong Whichever that will be, this is a hell.
11:44 Facebook on live: Other Dolphin trainers comes to select
They place a tarp to do the selection and killing, in order to avoid the activists will film to show the rest of the world.
12:08 Dolphins transportation – 1st boat.
They pour water with a dipper. To wash their blood and to protect the skin. Some dolphins were bleeding. Beautiful skin dolphins can be sold at a very high price. Some local aquarium or dolphin swin are not very beautiful. High-end places dolphins has prettier skin. Female can be sold at high prices because they will have babies. Male are cheaper. Low-cost concentration camps they use buy male dolphins and cast away.
Dolphin trainers captures dolphins. Dolphins face naturally seems as if they are smiling, but actually this is what they are going through.
12:13 Face book live: Living dolphins
On the previous day, 12 Rough-toothed dolphins were captured to be sold at the aquarium. If one dolphin-person are sold ¥5,000,000 yens, total sales ¥60.000.000 ($600.000 USD)
Risso’s and bottlenose were hunted today. Dolphin trainers taking them away along the boat.
Isana Fishermen’s association, Taiji Whale Museum, Taiji development company, Dolphin selling company are getting a huge profit. Aquariums can get great merchantise.
Dolphins will be captured for good in this small tank, amusing humans and die. Do you really want to go to the dolphin show?
12:27 Facebook on live : Some dolphins are taken away, some are killed.
2 Risso’s dolphins and 6 bottle nose dolphins were taken away. The rest of Risso’s are shoving onto the back of the cove. They are selecting and killing at the same time, so the dolphins are seeing and very aware that their friends and families are murdered and soon it will be his or her turn.
Motor sound, they are desperate to run away but is impossible to do so.
It freaks me out to even think about if this happens to me or to my family or friends.
13:03 Last Risso’s dolphins will be chased by 3 small boats.
There are silence after three boats chased them away.
But in the back of the cove, the dolphins are harpooned and quietly writhe in agony.
13:06 Taking away the third net.
End of dolphin hunt.
13:11 Dolphin trainers taking the dolphins aout.
Transporting the living sell dolphins on both sides.
In the tank of the aquarium you will find a crane in somewhere this crane is used to put dolphins into the tank.
13:24 1st boat with dead dolphins.
This is for the meat-selling. you see some fins, hunters are stepping on vinyl sheets to cover the dead ones.
In Taiji, they label as Risso’s meat, Bottlenose meat, but in other areas of Japan, they label as “Whale meat”
Dolphins are part of the whale and is less than 4 metres.
13:25 Small boat will pass away the dead corpse.
Under the vinyl sheet so that nobody can take photos.
Small boat will drag the body to the Taiji port or directly give to the Dolphin boats
Easy to find the dead body boat because they are so slow.
13:27 Second boat with the dead corpse.
Second small boats with a dead corpse and some hunters to go back to the Taiji port.
13:42 Dolphins trainers chit-chatting on the boat.
Move to Taiji Port.
On the first boat some dolphin trainers are on board.
This trainers on top of the victims were doing capture process. They are going toward the port, so some victims are also on the boat. Talking and laughing. They know many dolphins were killed. And they were the ones who decide their destiny.
Carrying the dead corpse. Under the tarps, are the dead dolphins.
13:50 Transporting dead dolphins into the dissection area.
Dead dolphins under the blue vinyl sheets. To the dissection area There are Risso’s head on the left side of the tarp.
Dolphin boat to drag the dead dolphins. Big gray ship is for pelagic whaling ship. Harpoon gun and blue vinyl bag around. Harpoon gun thrust into the body of the whale, they will spread into the body and cannot be taken away. Whales will suffer tremendeously, after after he or she lost all of the energy, they lift the whales onto the ship.
There are 3 types of whalings in Japan. 1 Drive hunt 2 Spear hunt 3 Pelagic whaling Baird’s beaked, Pilot whale, etc. Taiji does all 3 types of whaling.
13:52 Floating Risso’s dolphins
They were alive just until now.
13:57 Dead Risso’s face
They did all they can to survive. 8 were captured, 19 were killed.
Dibates are going differently between pro-hunts and con-hunts. Pro’s are talking only from the point of view of the humans. But actually, many con-hunts are not only for the dolphin hunts.
We try to protect the rights and liberty of all beings. including the dolphins.
Those who wants to protect the animals has the point of view of the animals, they are part of the animals, that is why they don’t want humand to kill or hurt, capture them.
Those who exploit the animals makes any excuses so they can get profits. Biggest profit is the meat (dead corpse) We say it is a tradition to eat meat, is a common sense, we are grateful so it’s okay to eat, environmental issue, sustaining , diversity, etc. etc. these are all human’s excuses. Those animals who suffer, in pain, frightened are left behind.
You or calf, which is better in value? What is the objective, and reasoable explanation that you have more value? What about you and the dolphins? Pigs? Tunas? or Salamanders? You are more valuable – This is just an illusion.
We are all one, living on this planet earth. We are always one-sided, exploiting as we wish.
