New Video From National Geographic Exposes the Horror of Japanese Dolphin Slaughter

This was emaild to me. The horrible truth is exposed via video. Please take the time to pass this along. As stated below, "Each year over 22,000 dolphins are hunted and slaughtered by Japanese fisherman during the six month hunting season."

Here is the link to the video:

I thought you might be interested in this for your newsletter.

The Japanese tradition of dolphin hunting continued this year, despite international scrutiny and celebrity protesters. Heroes (NBC) Actress Hayden Panettiere was among the protesters who attempted to swim out to a pod of dolphins in danger.

Panettiere was visibly upset after fisherman prevented her and other protesters from reaching endangered dolphins.

Each year over 22,000 dolphins are hunted and slaughtered by Japanese fisherman during the six month hunting season. Japanese fishermen find the protests insulting to their cultural traditions.

Check out this compelling video from National Geographic.com:
