Scene from "The Cove"
This photo was taken from the screen of my computer.

Have you ever watched the documentary, "The Cove?" I recently watched it after seeing it on  I never saw it before, and had only read the information on "The Cove," when I highlighted it on Netflix.    Some of you have probably seen this one, but for those who have not yet seen it, I highly recommend you watch it.  This is a documentary about what was for many years, as fairly secret  killing place for dolphins along the coast of Japan.  While the entire city appeared to be very friendly toward sea life, there was a whole hidden agenda with a secret, partially hidden cove, where there were tens of thousands of dolphins being slaughtered, under rather secure control.

I will be adding photos of some of the scenes from the documentary, and many are certainly not for the faint of heart, as they are graphic.
