The Cove turns to blood as Risso’s and rough-toothed dolphins slaughtered

Today, 38 rough-toothed dolphins were driven into the Cove, a lone pilot whale amongst them.

A small number of rough-toothed were slaughtered, 9 were taken for captivity and the rest were released.

In a second drive, 14 Risso’s dolphins were driven in, 11 were slaughtered, and 3 were released (including 2 young calves).

The pilot whale was also released.

Please, TAKE ACTION
