In the documentary Taiji looked like a town that loves dolphins and are famous for something about A Dolphin show or something The Taiji fishermen said that it is their culture and tradition But most of the Japanese people said that they didn't know about it; That does not ualify as culture or tradition And thinking of people eating capturing dolphins it was terrifying for me to think about it It was weird that people who where capturing dolphins didn't look like that they felt sad of terrifying A lot of people around the world should be shocked about the massacre of dolphins Well I was one of them that were shocked I never thought of an animal slaughter this way And I think animal slaughters like this should never happen
