The hunt starts on September 1st. and ends in March every year. The fisheres at the Cove are brutal in their hunt. They chase entire pods from the open sea for up to 8 hours..exhausting the dolphins..they drive them into the Cove by using underwater noise that is torturous to them...many pregnant females abort during this duress..many baby dolphins are run over by the fisher's boats and killed..once in The Cove..a brutal slaughter is carried out with machetes..barbaric..
Blood flowed at The Cove for the second time this hunting season, with approximately 14 Risso Dolphins, an entire family or pod killed. One dolphin was saved for the Aquarium Industry. Pressure needs to be put in this industry as well, they are directly supporting the slaughter of these beautiful cetaceans.
