MetadataShow full item record
Fishermen in the small Japanese town of Taiji killed more than two-dozen striped dolphins on Thursday, cam–paigners said, as global outrage over the slaughter grows. Activists from the militant environmentalist group Sea Shepherd said the hunters were herding the animals into a screenedoff area because they wanted to hide what they were doing. “They continue to use tarps to cover the slaughter, and physically drive the pod under the tarps . . . to avoid cameras,” Melissa Sehgal told Agence France- Presse by telephone from Taiji.
