Since September 1 the Taiji dolphin hunters have brutally killed approximately 69 Risso’s Dolphins – including 10 only a few days ago.

These beautiful animals and their calves have been subjected to some of the worst torture imaginable.

Yahoo! Japan sells Risso’s Dolphin meat online – in turn supporting these inhumane hunts.
