I don’t even know where to begin… everyday here gets harder and harder. I didn’t witness it, but I was talking over the radio as a few Cove Guardians were seeing some really horrible things happen. I have lost all respect for mankind. Completely.
Because today was my birthday we all went to my favorite log cabin restaurant, once everything was finished at about 1:30. We did not get back until just a little while ago. All of my photo and video is taking forever to upload. I am going to write quickly about today and then get to bed early. Tomorrow we don’t think they will go hunting, but we have to see, and I am really concerned about being in bad health again… this morning while we were all waiting for everything to start, I fell asleep! My dad didn’t wake me till 8am because he didn’t have the to heart to on my birthday. I felt so bad when I woke up, like I had been totally useless! But I think my body was trying to tell me that I am pushing it with all of these early mornings and emotional days.
The trainers went in, selected 8. About 40 were slaughtered right after the trainers left… and maybe 50 were let go. It was horrible. These two baby dolphins were swimming around in their family’s blood, looking for their mom (who was probably taken for captivity). When the slaughter was finished they drove the rest of the pod out, but the two babies did not want to go, they were looking all over for mom. So the evil men slaughtered them too.
We have footage of the trainers holding dolphins under the water so they can inspect them, and possibly make them weaker and easy to move. The trainers drown two dolphins, and left them floating in the Cove. Rupert got all that footage and SSCS will be posting it sometime tomorrow. There are no words to describe how wacked that is. All this crap about “trainers loving their dolphins and whales” is lies!
I really do need to cut my blog short tonight; I will fill in all the holes in a blog tomorrow! I do have to say that in the mist of this awful tragedy, I had a lovely dinner far away from the Cove surrounded by people who care about me! Thank you for turning a terrible day into a wonderful evening you guys! J
