You’re not a person; you’re a disease. All these lives that you’ve been taking, Deep inside, my heart is breaking. Broken homes from separation. Don’t you know it’s violation? It’s so wrong, but you’ll see. Never gonna let you take my world from me….”-D
It all happened in three hours. Start to finish. I can’t even express how unreal today was. Seven AM they were driving a pod in. By Ten everyone was leaving, expect for the two police officers who stayed as long as Tarah and I sat on the beach, shocked!
This morning we drove up to the Cove with boats coming in already! A few people went earlier this morning to remind the fishermen that we are here and called us to let us know that the boats were out. They had two pods! But one escaped thank god.
However one was not that lucky. At seven they were driving them in… by eight the dolphins were in the Cove. 8:30 the gutting barge was in place. 9:00 they were all dead. 10:00am everything was done and the gutting barge was back in it’s place. I can’t wrap my head around it. I honestly have nothing to say today… I’m really sorry. I just don’t have it in me right now to let out everything that is building up… I’m too emotionally tired. Sometimes you have to let song lyrics do your talking for you.
Please check my dad’s update on the Sea Shepherd website… you are going to see the worst footage yet there. My dad wasn’t even sure he wanted to show it to me. It shows live dolphins being dragged by their tails up the beach, to their death.
We all met on the beach afterwards… it’s funny, we’ve all known each other for a little over a week, and we all feel like we have been friends forever. Something about this place, what it does to the people, how it brings us all together…. in a way no one can really understand unless they are here with us. It’s a bond that cannot be broken… and each of us are on other sides of the world! It’s very special and I really wish everyone can have a experience like this sometime in their life, where you didn’t realize how much a group of people who are practically strangers, can connect, come together, and fight for something they all believe in… which is what brought them together in the first place.
