Another pod of Risso’s dolphins hunted in Taiji

After almost two weeks without any dolphin hunts in Japan, a pod of Risso’s dolphins was chased and rounded up by fishermen in Taiji on January 5th.  

All 16 individuals were then slaughtered in the cove used by the fishermen to kill the dolphins. Risso’s dolphins have been the hardest hit this drive hunt season, with 150 individuals killed thus far. Of 2,173 dolphins that are allowed to be killed under this season’s hunt quota, at least 296 dolphins from various species have been killed and 90 taken alive into captivity so far. Pilot whales, striped and bottlenose dolphins have also been killed or taken alive into captivity.
