"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." Depending on which version of events you follow on the creation story man has overall rule in the animal kingdom. This is utter nonsense. Does that mean that it is acceptable to slaughter 23,000 dolphins in Taiji, Japan alone?
A 2009 documentary, The Cove, exposed the cruel art of dolphin murder that goes on in a hidden cove in a little Whaling town called Taiji. The barbaric activities of these people takes place after dolphin trainers have rounded up their quota of bottle nosed 'Flipper' dolphins to take back to SeaWorld for training and our 'entertainment'. The rest are brutally murdered.
