The weird thing is there are lots of posts on this in other forums where people use dolphin for extra impact, clearly whale slaughter is not as bad or we are used to it, dolphins get a much better press. In every press article there isnt a dolphin in sight, yet they still use the dolphin slaughter headline.
If you watch any nature programme on dolphins they are not the sweet helpful creatures we make them out to be, they are in fact sadistic fish murdering eating machines that kill each other and their smaller relatives
. Sharks are way more useful to the ecosystem its just that seaworld hasnt figured out how to get them to play to a crowd yet and no one made a film about giant killer dolphins.
In the uk we shoot/ cull loads of nice fluffy animals, seals, bambis, badgers we even had a go at hedgehog hunting. The RSPCB frequently cull everything on their lands that may effect birds. Yet there is no world outcry of "stop the seal murdering jocks" yet I see dead seals that have been shot on the beach all the time.
