Killing Dolphins in Japan

This guy makes a good point when he says don't buy tickets to dolphin shows.
Or whale shows, elephant shows, and all the other venues that capture wild animals for us to take pictures of.

What's keeping this trade alive is supply and demand.
We can't control the supply but we could help reduce the demand.

Good point Gary.

This stuff exists because we buy tickets to see tortured animals. I'm guilty of it. We giggled and laughed as a formally wild and happy dolphin splashed all of us in the front row. Being top of the food chain is really nice but it does come with some responsibility. We shouldn't buy those tickets anymore.

I know I won't.

My most recent experience viewing enclosed wild animals was at "Sarasota Jungle Gardens". Supposedly all of their animals are "rescued". I have no problem with that.
Will be more careful screening such shows in the future.
