Ric O'Barry discussed the roundup and slaughter of dolphins in Japan. This grisly operation is largely fueled by the demand for captive dolphins to display at sea world type attractions around the world. I have cut out the gory depictions of these animals being slaughtered. Get the DVD of the Oscar awarded documentary, now available on DVD.
Richard (Ric) O'Barry (born c. 1941) was first recognized in the 1960s for capturing and training the five dolphins that were used in the well-known TV series Flipper. Soon after Cathy, one of the Flipper dolphins, died in O'Barrys arms he made a radical transition from training dolphins in captivity to assertively combating the captivity industry. O'Barry is currently featured in The Cove, a film that uses covert techniques to expose the yearly dolphin drive hunting that goes on in Taiji, Japan. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ric_O%27...
