(WTNH)– Animal rights activists are happy about a victory in Japan.
Japanese aquariums are now changing the way they acquire dolphins. This after the Oscar-winning documentary “The Cove” exposed the way in which dolphins were captured, and sometimes killed or sold to aquariums.
In those hunts, dolphins are scared and herded with loud banging into a cove where they are then trapped and killed or sold off.
Aquariums are now promising not to purchase dolphins captured through this practice anymore.
