It's horrible thinking that in two weeks, people in Japan will set out to capture and kill thousands of dolphins and most of the world doesn't know about it, It's even worse to think that these murderers think they're doing the right thing and will keep doing it, amirite?

5 things you can do now to help:
http://www.takepart.com/thecove

Domestic animals such as cows, chickens, and pigs were domesticated so that we could raise, breed, and eat them. This process has been going on for thousands of years because we need something to eat. I don't think it's wrong, but to treat them in a cruel way is wrong. If your going to eat a animal, you might as well treat it with respect and any farm that can't do this is sickening. The poaching of wild animals and cruelty of domestic animals are both important, but I think poaching is more serious, because if a species goes extinct from poaching, there's no bringing them back.

the love of animals shouldn't be greater then that for humanity, it should be equal (no life is more important then another) that being said the cove pisses me off, those people don't understand, and hate shouldn't thrown at them because they're narrow minded.

Yeah. I get unbelievably frustrated at all of the "save the dolphins" activists--not because they're fighting for animal rights, but because they're blatantly ignoring the rights of all other animals. Really, look into the treatment and legislation behind our domestic animals. Compared to them, the wild animals have it easy. At least they get to live their lives with space and freedom to travel for most of it. It's sad, yeah, but it's also sad how we slaughter even more cows and chickens in really inhumane ways after they've lived pretty sucky lives overall.

It would be like waking up every morning, watching your cousin or sister or whoever being taken away and never coming back. You live a shit life and your owner will never set you free. You don't know what's going on until the day you're sent away to be butchered.

Yes, incredibly humane.

Would you rather people brutally murder them for fun, and then just throw away the corpses? At least they're dying for a purpose. By the way, not all slaughterhouses are inhumane. Are some? Absolutely. But not all.

And they're not smart enough to know that their family is being taken away. In fact, they probably don't notice that anyone is "leaving and never coming back". There's no "realization", either. Cows and chickens don't ponder over the meaning of their lives in their free time, nor do they think "Hey, wait a minute, wasn't that guy just here yesterday? Oh, no, they're disappearing! I must be next! I knew something was up!" They eat and sleep, completely oblivious to what's going on.

Actually, they probably do notice. If they're smart enough to be able to raise their children like any other animal, they're smart enough to know who their family isat least linearly. They're herd animals. They function as a unit and in the wild, they become more vulnerable as some of them get picked off. There's evolutionary reason for them to have that sort of cognitive awareness. And it's not primarily the fact that they see others dying around themit's how they're treated on their way there, how they're killed. It's not like they get numbed before they die.

Further, hunting is still legal. How is that not just as brutal? It's just as bad because not all of the animal gets used. It's not like they skin the hide and make it into leather. Huge portions get thrown away. It's a wasteful process. And it's not as if they'd be bred for people to go around killing if they weren't for food--this isn't Runescape, people.

Because this is fucking nature, oldtimer. If you want to really care about the animals, make every goddamn animal a vegetarian somehow. Besides, if we don't kill the dolphins, the jellyfish will. You know they're taking over the oceans, don't you? Literally taking over the oceans. Dolphins are very toxic to jellyfish, you know. And Japan is being stupid by killing the jellyfish, which releases their pores into the ocean, and instead making thousands of more jellyfish.

So, either way, the dolphins are dead. By Japan killing them, they're dead by food. By the jellyfish killing them, they're dead by food. And what happens even if none of them kill them? Oh, something will eat them, just not us or the jellyfish.

We're nature too. We have to eat as well. I don't give a damn if I'm eating dolphin meat (and ironically, I hardly eat meat). If dolphins were put under the category as "livestock", I'm sure you wouldn't give a damn anymore.

The thing is with the dolphin meat from there is it's really poisonous, they label it incorrectly which is illegal, people have gotten really ill, from what I've seen and hey, it could be biased, many of the people selling this meat thrived for money, they didn't care how they got it, which is what sickens me about Cove, with your issue about jellyfish killing them, well isn't that just the circle of life? In my opinion there's a difference between killings like that which you can't stop and people killing thousands when they don't need to, you know they "release" the dolphins that are left behind and then chase them only to kill them as for fun right? I don't know if I'm explaining this very well but there's a big difference there, killing them like that is not nature, it's people going against it.

Yes but for some forms of meat (that come from chicken and pigs for example) those animals are raised to be killed and eaten. The Japanese are taking what is not theirs and not only just killing them but selling them to aquariums all over the world landing many of these dolphins in captivity (which is also very bad for dolphins).

I am going to assume that you do not live in Japan or have ever been to Japan because if that was the case, you would know better. People in Japan know that it's dolphin, not whale. They are aware of it. The labels are misleading to foreigners but perfectly clear to the Japanese. Also, the toxicity is not hidden. The Japanese fishing association has all the information about Hg levels on their websites. The website also states the amount of dolphin meat that can be consumed without harm and that it must not be consumed by pregnant women.

And once again, I am not supporting the dolphin hunt. Heck, I am against killing all animals and am a vegetarian. But all I am saying is that we should not be singling out Japan because we think killing dolphins is disgusting. We should not be imposing our values on them.
