The cove


The slaughter of 20,000 dolphins, porpoises, and small whales occurs in Japan each year. Starting on September 1st and usually continuing through March of the next year, fishermen herd whole families of small cetaceans into a shallow bays, then stab them to death (or leave them to drown once mortally wounded) until the water turns red with blood. There is more information on the Sea Shepherd site (including how you can help) and Facebook pages. They also have a page of videos.
