After driving pods of dolphins into shallow coves, the fisherman kill the dolphins by slashing their throats with knives or stabbing them with spears. Thrashing about, the dolphins take as long as 6 minutes to die. The water turns red with all their blood and the air is filled with sounds of their screams.
This brutal massacare, the largest scale dolphin kill in the world, goes on for 6 months of every year! Even more shocking, the captive dolphin industry is accomplice to the kill.
