Every time I drive past that harbor, and see those boats are out… I just know they are molesting an innocent family, for profit! And then I get sick…
Right now it is only my dad, Thomas, and me… so we went to our normal look out place, all three of us. We have more people arriving this week! So we will be back to a large team soon! It wasn’t long until two different groups of boats appeared with pods. They came from around the lighthouse… either the pod split, or they managed to find two at one time. Either way, it was a disturbing sight.
The first pod was just not having any of this! They were appearing behind the boats and then racing away, but the poor things were so tired they were no match to the speed of those boats! The second pod, which was way out towards the horizon, seemed to be going along for the ride, which just broke my heart! They didn’t know what was going on, how could they? All they knew was that they were being chased, by a never ending clanking!
Once the fist pod was being driven into the funnel we went to “Le wall”. This is when I got a little bit of hope! They were still fighting, and popping up behind the boats, I just wanted to scream “GO DOLPHINS GO!” But, I yelled it in my head instead since the situation was really tense!
It was incredible, the dolphins were actually at the mouth of the Cove, I watched them surface, and then kinda vanish! I was searching everywhere for them with my camera and all the molesters were dumbfounded! Then my dad walked over to me and said “don’t look at me… the dolphins are behind me heading for the harbor.” I almost did the happy dance right there, but didn’t want to jinx anything! The boats eventually went racing over there, but then stopped and never returned with anything, instead they went out to help their buddies with the second pod that was being driven to it’s death. The first pod we are about 90% sure got away!
The second pod was not so lucky. They went right into the killing Cove. Then everyone left. Except for the coast guard and police that were all around us. We got comfortable and ready to be there all day. My dad got the listening device and we stood on the rocks listening to this very sad whistling. Then we could hear a boat motor… and that is when they arrived. The whistling got louder, but then I gave the headphones to my dad so I could photograph… I will never forget that sound. It will haunt me for the rest of my life.
One molester fell out of a boat! Funniest thing I have seen since I have been here!
Five dolphins were taken for slavery. An estimated 23 died today. I am so disgusted with our species right now,
We are really down today, something about watching one pod get away, and another not being so lucky… or maybe it’s just witnessing death all the time lately. Whatever it is, it has to stop. This has to stop. And humans are the only ones who can make that happen… it’s kinda ironic, the same species that are destroying, are the only ones that can save this planet!
Far Fast and Deep,
Oh! We ran into Surfer Boy (One of the dolphin trainers) at the supermarket today. So we messed with him a little bit, hence the picture.
