'The Cove''s Ric O'Barry Refuses To Participate In Dolphin Hunt Negotiations

An arranged meeting between marine life conservationists and representatives from a dolphin-hunting village in Taiji, Japan ended before it began on Tuesday after The Cove’s Ric O’Barry refused to participate.

O’Barry was frustrated with certain issues regarding media restrictions, including the banning of major networks and a regulation that allowed only questions preselected by a Japanese moderator from a partisan organization.

“There’s no compromise to be made. There will be no stopping of our activities until the harassment, capture and slaughter of both dolphins and whales on this planet ends,” said Sea Shepherd member Scott West who has been on site monitoring the situation.

Still, leaders from Taiji defend their right to kill dolphins and whales.

“It’s not right for you to force your values on us,” said Town Council chief Katsutoshi Mihara.

Here at Ecorazzi we are vehemently opposed to the dolphin hunt and wish Ric and his team much luck. Fingers crossed that some peaceful resolution can be made.

All animals matter morally, equally.
