Another Albino Dolphin Captured at Taiji Cove
Sea Shepherd volunteer Karen Hagen was on the ground at Taiji on Sunday and also happened to be present when the young albino bottlenose dolphin known as Angel was captured in January . Hagen says: “It is horribly sad to see another albino dolphin taken by the killers here in Taiji. These rare, beautiful, and unique animals will spend the rest of their days confined to small tanks, where they will live out their shortened lives performing tricks for food.” Critics of the brutal annual hunt argue that it is not driven by traditional culinary practices as claimed, but by the lucrative profits to be made selling captured dolphins to aquariums and theme parks worldwide.
