Dolphins Scream, Clubbed & Skinned Alive

Peru, fishermen are clubbing to death or skinning alive up to 20,000 dolphins a year.

They thrust harpoons into their tender bodies and hoist them out of the sea. "Their screams I can still hear, leaving painful memories" says our conservationist colleague, who was undercover and present at the time. He goes on to say, "I just went numb and speechless when I saw the pitiful dolphins being clubbed to death or skinned alive". "I secondly recorded everything so the world could see what was happening and somehow, I just hoped that I could stop it happening forever". "I even had to sleep next to the sad little carcases of the savagely killed dolphins, it was horrific". 

Yes it is illegal to kill dolphins in Peru, but there is little or no enforcement to stop it.

GreenEcoPeace is now pursuing the Peruvian government to stop it, with the threat that we will make sure that it seriously affects their tourist trade to which they seriously rely o, if they don't start making attempts to stop it.

Other countries killing dolphins are, Japan, large scale, Indonesia, Vietnam and Tasmania.

Dolphins are killed mainly in huge numbers for shark bait, sharks are then caught, their fins cruelly ripped off and then they are thrown back into the sea to agonizingly die and often themselves being eaten alive, as they can't defend themselves.

Sharks Fins are Tasteless and are put into soup, mostly in the far East, a waste of a beautiful endangered sea animal predator, badly needed to help our Eco-system.

Two major predators that really help our Eco-system, being destroyed by ruthless fishermen for money and for greed. Once priceless predator destroyed to catch another priceless predator, just for a tasteless fin in soup. It's just mind boggling and unthinkable.


Interfering with nature should be outlawed by all governments. How can people do so much damage to endangered animals so they can have a lot of money.

Sad to see people spending so much time working out how to kill endangered animals for money and worse, killing one endangered sea animal to catch another endangered species.

Just two comments from hundreds of thousands of people who will be complaining to the Peruvian government.

Hung up alive, dropped into a dirty rusty flat back truck and just 5 minutes away from the most horrific slaughter imaginable (photo by Sakae Hemmi)

 Dolphins are one of the most loved and beautiful sea mammals in the world. They are trusting of man and do not understand the deceitful, cunning and ugly ways of the Japanese fishermen (dolphin slaughter men).

While these wonderful dolphins are swimming happily in the sea with their families and friends they are totally unaware of the evil people that are slowly surrounding them. They do not realise that their lives are in great danger. Fast speed boats slowly encroach upon them and form a half circle around them. 

The cruel Japanese dolphin slaughterers then start banging metal pipes to distress and confuse them. The dolphins are then slowly driven into a cove, or harbour, surrounded by a flotilla of speed boats. Once the dolphins are forced into these inescapable coves, or harbours, they are surrounded by unescapable nets. These nets are then gradually pulled tighter and tighter so the dolphins can hardly move. The dolphins know that there is something drastically wrong and become extremely shocked and stressed and begin to make emotional screaming noises and in particular if they have been separated from their young.

Its life the sea. Its fate the knife. This fun loving dolphin didn't ask for its throat to be cut. this poor dolphin had no choice! Left A dolphins carcass and dolphins cut into pieces and squashed into crates

Some of the dolphins are driven into cove like area's where their throats are cut and some have s pears thrown into them. The waters all around then turn to red from their blood. It's so horrible that it looks just like a sickening sea of red. Other screaming dolphins are mercilessly grabbed with sharp hooks, ropes are then tied behind their struggling tail fins and they are then hauled up into the air and violently dropped onto a dirty filthy flat back rusty truck. The poor seriously injured dolphins are then driven away to face their fate in a make shift blood stained slaughter warehouse. The dolphins on arrival are then dropped off the back of the rusting truck and with no remorse their throats are cut, they are then thrown about and then butchered until dead.

There is no restrictions on how dolphins have to be slaughtered. In these hunts the fisheries Agency of Japan only advises the Japanese dolphin slaughterers to reduce the time of death by cutting its spinal cord instead of its throat. The Japanese dolphin slaughtering fishermen do not care, they butcher the poor defenceless dolphins where ever they want. See photographs and see video. There ae notices all around these killing area's, warning the public and photographers to keep out. 

Fishermen, police and the Fishing Agency Officials try to stop the taking of photo's and video's. See web site and click onto video.

We have all got to work together to stop the sickening killing of dolphins. It just cannot be allowed to go on. Tell the Japanese what you think.

Write or email regularly, to the Japanese Government, the Japanese Embassy London, the Prime Minister of Japan and the Japanese Ministry of Fisheries etc.
