BREAKING: 14 in Dolphin pod have been SLAUGHTERED

The dolphins in the 2 videos just below this post have been killed:  EXCEPT *edit* two who have already been transported out of town, likely to be sold to a dolphin park or swim program.

Here is one early report:

The Cove Runs Red with Blood for the Second Time this Season

Taiji fishermen slaughtered the entire Pod of an estimated twenty Rissos dolphins sparing the life of one to be sold to the Aquarium industry.

Yesterday Sea Shepherd offered to buy the lives of the captive dolphins. The fishermen refused saying that they would not sell us the dolphins to be released. They sneered at the offer saying it was nonsense to buy dolphins to release them hinting it was like welfare and they would not take hand-outs.

Instead they speared and stabbed the dolphins in the cove until the water ran scarlet with blood.

The Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians are on site filming the slaughter, restricted by numerous Japanese Coast Guard and police

There will be more infomation on a Save Japan Dolphins WORLDWIDE Protest this Thursday.  I'll get this up by tomorrow!

UPDATE 1: This from @blumarbl on Twitter. 

the "spared" babies now have no place to go, no protection and no future. #JapansShame

the dolphin babies are traumatized from seeing the pod massacred around them and forced to swim in their mother’s blood #JapansShame

fishermen in #thecove are at this moment driving the babies out but they won't leave, they are looking for their mothers

6 baby dolphins were "spared" in Taiji, although there mothers were killed, meaning the babies will starve #JapansShame 

UPDATE 2:

Taiji Fishermen May Spare Mothers and Babies
We have confirmed that 14 dolphins were killed today at Taiji. Two were taken into the harbour hoisted onto a flatbed truck and driven out of town. About 6 dolphins, mothers with calves are still swimming in the bloody waters of the Cove. The fishermen have indicated they may release them to appease the Cove Guardians. We cant confirm this until they do but it remains a possibility.

There were Japanese news crews in Taiji covering the kill today. That is unusual.
