Documentary film accuses SeaWorld of dolphin slaughter just by association

Posted Thursday, August 6, 2009 11:16 AM | Contributed by Jeff

In The Cove, opening Aug. 7, a film crew manages to document Taiji's annual "drive fishery," which rounds up "pest" dolphins, sells some to overseas theme parks and then slaughters an estimated 23,000 dolphins, often passing the meat off as whale to unsuspecting Japanese consumers. Even though no U.S. theme parks have been allowed to import dolphins or other marine mammals from drive fisheries since 1993, SeaWorld and other U.S. parks are criticized in the movie for not working to stop the drives.

ok... I own a computer, and I'm sure there's a lot of illegal sales of computers going on. Is it my fault for not trying to stop it? I don't think Six Flags is responsible for monitoring a fishery's practices. But maybe that's just me.

I call Cedar Point my home park even though I live in the Chicago Suburbs.

Don't the quotes from the filmmaker seems irrationally angry? What a douche.

I use to watch "Flipper" as a kid, am I "guilty by association" too?

Well there's yet another crap-u-mentary that's off my Netflix list.

Just because you own a video camera, doesn't automatically mean your information will be useful to anyone.
