Re: Dolphin Rescued from Rice Field 12 Days After Tsunami

I do understand. I've seen some really crazy "documentary" type programs about these wee intelligent mammals and being caught up in giant fishing nets and or slaughtered. I think its barbaric. So is smacking a cow in the head with a machine.

:(

Re: Dolphin Rescued from Rice Field 12 Days After Tsunami

Wow actually tried to save a dolphin? Probably only so they could kill it later. Fucking pricks

Re: Dolphin Rescued from Rice Field 12 Days After Tsunami

such a sweet story with the possibility of such a tragic ending. it is easy to group a nationality by the actions of some yet here you can see the reasons it is wrong. not all japanese people are advocates for the slaughter of dolphin (just like not all americans are for the slaughter of horses or other animals that are slaughtered for food).

i highly doubt the dolphin will survive being it is young and the radiation in the water. but for someone who cared, there was little else they could do. the dolphin had no chance whatsoever where it was found and they did the best they could. with so much devastation, a small act to a helpless animal is surprisingly even noticed and mentioned. what a wonderful man with a great heart!

i googled taiji and tsunami to find out if the tsunami hit the cove and unfortunately the cove remains. (the cove is where the dolphins get rounded up and caught - bugdude posted a clip on that in the previous post.)
this is what i did find out. appears the tsunami saved some dolphins and killed others depending whether they were in a net or in a sea pen. also on one of the pages i looked at there was another video of the tsunami that i had not yet seen so i will add it here. if it was already posted, my apologies. the following is what i found on the internet...
======================

*March 11/11:This update on the dolphins in the Habour pens of Taiji came through from Mark Bramberry on Facebook:
Taiji: 6 surges in the harbour which caused damage dolphin pens - pens got washed across rocks, cries of dolphins were audible. Details sketchy

* March 11/11: This updated report by Steven Thompson on the dolphins:
:" Screams were from dolphins from an Aussie near the area. He went safely up Tsunami Hill. Sorry to report that none of the dolphins were seen to have escaped. Boats did get out to ride out the waves."

* March 12/11: In Taiji, 24 captured dolphins were killed in the pens run by the FU. The sea water surged six times smashing the pens into the rocks. The hunters took their boats to safety in the bay. No FU staff stayed behind. The pens were not secured. Nobody checked on them. no news from the dolphin base for now...via Thomas Gainard

*March 12/11: In Taiji, 24 captured dolphins were killed in the pens run by the FU. The sea water surged six times smashing the pens into the rocks. The hunters took their boats to safety in the bay. No FU staff stayed behind. The pens were not secured. Nobody checked on them. The dolphins were heard to cry for hours....via Mark Bramberry (TDAG)


*March 13/11: Somewhere between 13 and 24 dolphins were killed either through drowning or injury on the rocks and it appears that they were processed as meat in the slaughterhouse this morning....via Michael Dalton (Eyes On Taiji

===========================================


Did the huge earthquake and tsunami take out the cove/ taiji??

Ive done a bit of digging, and from what I can find they werent hit strong by the earthquake, but the tsunami was pretty bad in taiji, breaking buildings and washing boats ashore. The cove guardians and sea Shepard volunteers are all okay, and in the cove the nets have broken free, allowing the escape of the days dolphins, but the cove itself unfortunately is still intact, if temporarily stopped. In other news Some friends going over in april tell me that we have stopped a few weeks of killing this year!

==================
Ric O'Barry posted word at SaveJapanDolphins.org over the weekend that all of the organization's volunteers are safe, but that the tsunami claimed several dolphins in Taiji.

Ric writes:

Sadly, the news out of Taiji is no better. Although it is located well away from the epicenter of the earthquake, they did experience swells from the tsunami. Sadly, we heard that all 24 dolphins being kept in sea pens in the harbor died as they were thrashed against the rocky coastline. During such a difficult time, it's hard to say what I'm feeling about the fisherman who left them there. So I won't.

A team of volunteers from SaveJapanDolphins.org had been about 700 miles north of Taiji in Iwate Prefecture, near the epicenter of the temblor, when the quake struck last week. The volunteers had been monitoring Dall's Porpoise hunts, and had to scramble to higher ground overlooking the city of Otsuchi.

Volunteer Brian Barnes posted this video of the final moments of the quake, the tsunami sirens, and a wall of water that submerges the town below them.
