Documentary called The Cove
There was this documentary I saw the other day on Netflix called The Cove. It was about these scientists who are activists who travel to Japan to document how people there slaughter dolphins. And also to document how in Japan they sell whale and dolphin meat at stores. It was very heartbreaking to watch. I had to close my eyes a couple of times because I couldn't bare to watch them slaughter the dolphins and watch them suffer. At the same time though watching this documentary helped me understand that some Americans are similar Japanese people. In Japan it is normal for them to eat whales and dolphins like its normal for us in the US to eat cows, chickens, and pigs. Yeah most Americans might be against eating dolphins and whales but we shouldn't judge them if that is what Japanese people grew up eating.
