As I sit here admiring my new ” Winter” mouse pad and still feeling the warm glow from our visit over the weekend to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, my first email this morning has turned my stomach and filled me with outrage.
Right now, I am seeing red, blood-red, the blood of many of Winter’s own kind.
Her sweet face is still strong in my mind and the thought of others like her being slaughtered, makes me want to do bad things to those who are guilty.
The petition which is listed below, came as a horrible reminder, that there are still places on this confused plant, where some life has more meaning than others.
While the US and Japan long ago ended their cold post war relationship, which has since become one of extremely high valued goods exchanges, but perhaps, this atrocity by the tiny country may repulse so many, that the warm cozy relationship could turn icy one more, at least for animal lovers, like so many who come here are.
May I implore you to not only sign this petition, but to pass it along and speak quite loudly and clearly to all who will listen, that this kind of reprehensible treatment of such an intelligent, loving, trusting, gentle creature, will not be tolerated.
There is absolutely no valid, nor credible reason for this despicable crime against innocent animals and it must be stopped immediately.
Japan must be made to clearly understand that many Humans on this Planet, treasure animals, especially Dolphin’s, whose contributions to the Human race are so numerous, that they could fill a book.
Are these not the same people who go giddy over Pandas?
Imagine if this were being done to that very cherished animal of the Japanese people?
I know that you will not let these Dolphins down and will raise your loving, caring voices in complete horror, outrage, indignation and opposition to this.
Please do feel free to reblog and/or share this post and the link, everywhere.
This contentious, protesting post was most unfortunately just written on my brand new Sony Vaio computer, a fact that disturbs me beyond description.
Here is the Petition link to help you begin an outpouring of necessary action:
Stop Japan Dolphin Killing Town
Humanity hardly lives up to its own name

Thank you dear~
Sick-um my dear, Sick-um
I did, I did!
Unfortunately nothing to like :(. Where is humanity in human society? I signed the petition and will spread the word.
No there is nothing to like here, only that which proves that we Humans
can be so very cruel to those who cannot defend themselves.
Thank you Rachel for your compassion.
Thank you so very much for all that you do!
Just appalling that this barbarism continues to this day.
Yes, Michael and if we do not stop it, who will?

They say thank you Nancy!
Signed the petition !
We are all going to have to step up and put terrific
pressure on any country that choose to behave in this manner.
I can’t like it either, but I do think killing dolphins and whales for sport or meat is outrageous. The more we learn about them, the more we learn how smart and wonderful they are.
Agree completely Brenda.
Our world would be such a shallow place without these glorious creatures.
Agreed, and we just don’t have the right to destroy other species. It’s heinous.

This is just so shocking and must be stopped now. As a vegan I oppose the killing of any living being. I am so appalled that in any modern progressive society the slaughter of these intelligent beings is allowed. It is even more shocking to propose a Marine Park to allow tourists to swim with the dolphins to fund their slaughter!
A water park where visitors will be able to swim with dolphins before sitting down to eat their meat is actually being planned in Japan. You cannot believe it can you.
I had to read the petition several times to get my head round this shocking news.
Gandhi once said
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
I have to ask what does Japan’s treatment of Dolphins say about the government of Japan who allow such atrocities to sentient beings to take place?
Please spread the above post and link widely

Taiji Dolphin Slaughter
This film will break your heart. How can anyone do such terrible things to these sentient beings? Even if it were true that the dolphins are killed instantly it is not right to take the life of these animals, there is nothing humane about death quick or otherwise. All creatures wish to live.
“Japanese fishermen claim they kill dolphins instantaneously and without pain. This video WHICH IS EXTREMELY GRAPHIC shows that it can take 7 minutes for a dolphin to die an agonizing death. The video was taken at great personal risk by German journalist Dieter Hagmann at Taiji, Japan. Dieter manages the BlueVoice website for Europe”
Once again, you have risen to the occasion with such tremendous information.
How can we/they ever thank you enough?
Your obvious love of animals makes you such a very rare Human being.
God Bless you for your great compassionate heart.
As for my personal most admired Human being, ever, here is a link to just a bit of his life:

Thank you dear Adam~
You are so welcome 🙂 xxx
We’ve signed – it’s incredibly cynical.
Thank you for all that you do for animals~
I saw this on the news a few days ago. I was disgusted and the whole thing made me very sad. I can’t even begin to understand how people could do such cruel things to such beautiful creatures. It was just horrific – how they could cause so much pain to the creatures, and how they could kill them. I will definitely be signing the petition.
Thank you so much Tilly.
It is a deplorable, disgusting situation that must be responded to worldwide if we are to stop it.
Please pass it on!
