Dolphin Sad Story

Dolphin is currently under protection worldwide, but decades ago, dolphin is regarded as fish in some countries. Fishermen could catch freely, and sell in the market.
At that time one fishing village in Japan, called Taiji, where fishermen depended their living on catching dolphin. Every year in September, dolphin, over twenty thousand in number, would migrate to some unknown place and they would pass the bay of Taiji.
Therefore, fishermen would wait at bayside and when dolphins arrived, they would make noise to frighten dolphins. Few hundred of dolphins would swim into the bay to escape the fear of noise. Then, fishermen would block the bay by fishing net. There few hundreds of dolphins became prisoner in the bay.
On the second day, the Taijo village was so busy because many trainers of aquarium from all over the world came to buy good qualities of dolphins for their own country. They paid high prices to buy. But, their demand were limited, twenty to thirty were maximum.
The remaining dolphins would be killed as food. All dolphins would be killed in the bay by very sharp forks to pierce through its heart to let it die quickly. At that moment the sea water turned to be red which is very sad indeed. Then, those dead dolphins would be pulled to the fish market for sale. The scene was cruel because of such huge number of dead dolphins lying together.
