Inside the Killing Cove – Is there dismay inside the local community!

We have been given this footage and some photos, exposing the inside of the killing section of the Hatajiri cove, Taiji – apparently quite up-to-date – by a local resident, who wants to remain anonymous for obvious reasons. This person meant to reveal the extent of cover-up (literally) undertaken by the Taiji Fisheries Union, to hide what is presently happening in the killing cove.

Inside the killing one


I do not know, if this person has legal access to the killing section of Hatajiri cove or if the images were taken without permission; but this is not of concern to me. The anonymous source expressed confusion about why the Taiji dolphin hunters try to hide so desperately what they claim to be so proud of.

And the source showed deep concern for the reputation of both Taiji and Japan, with all the negative international attention drawn by the “distressful situation” related to the Hatajiri cove. “Many people, even within the Taiji community, are against dolphin hunting and the difficult situation resulting for this rural town”, the source clearly said: “But they do not dare to raise their voices.”

This is why these present images have come to be disclosed by the anonymous local person: “So they could be spread as widely as possible, both internationally and within Japan.” I wish to give thanks and appreciation for the courage of this local person and to those, who made the connection and the communication possible for this sensitive matter.

  1. Thank-you for this inside look of the killing cove. I am grateful the world can see the extent the killers go to covering up their murdering. It is chilling to visually see the hunters chamber of death. That brick wall, all those tarps, the shallow shoreline that is the last thing the people of the sea experience as they leave this world in a violent way. Sadly, this beautiful little cove is will always be known for what it is, as Auschwitz for dolphins.

  2. Thank-you for your bravery in providing a look look inside of the killing cove. I am grateful the world can see the extent the killers go to covering up their murdering. It is chilling to visually see the hunters chamber of death. That brick wall, all those tarps, the shallow shoreline that is the last thing the people of the sea experience as they leave this world in with such pain and suffering at the hands of the killers. Sadly, this beautiful little cove is will always be known for what it is, as the Auschwitz for dolphins, a place where millions have died unspeakable deaths.

    The marine mammal version of viewing the “showers” at Auschwitz. Dolphin Holocaust. Said with all due respect to those who lost lives, loves, families and more in the various human victim versions.
