What is the first thing that comes to your mind when someone mentioned the word "Dolphin"?
Friendly creatures? One of Earth's most intelligent animal? Sociable creature?
Dolphins have always left a positive impression in me. Neither are they sadistic or hideous -(toad/frog, my major fear!) . In fact, they are always depict as the friendly creatures in movies or shows such as Flipper, who always get along so well with the human mankind.They are just so incredibily adorable that one might even get tempted to have a Dolphin as a pet! (That's beside the point - of cos we can't but we can always adopt one! visit this link: http://www.marineconnection.org/adopt_a_dolphin.html)
Not long ago, I came across an email titled: Stop the dolphin and whale killings in Taiji. I did not give it much thought at first and it took me close to another week before I finally click on the mail to read more. After watching the short video attached to it, it doesn't take me long to realise that I too should play a part in saving the lives of these helpless creatures who are being killed inhumanly in somewhere not far aways from where I am right now.
I know some of you out there might be thinking that all these are just parts and parcels of life. Animals are meant to be killed to satisfy our palate. Isn't that how all the lives of the other animals are meant and decided to be when they were born or even much earlier. (when their parents were being bred and fed to produce offspring for sales) But let's try looking at this from another angle. Are there not enough variety of food out there to satisfy our stomach in today's world? Human is one of the most fortunate living things in this world. We have much more than we could ever ask for and yet we are always seen complaining of how we are forever lacking in certain areas in our lives. When can we ever get satisfied with our lives? Sadly the answer by the majority is "Never".
I sincerely hope that after watching this video clip, it will change the way you felt about the killing of Dolphin and Whale. (Hopefully for the better)
How do you feel after watching the clip? Do you feel the same way as I did? We can all do our part for these poor creatures now. Be part of the petition to free these lovely creatures that are supposed to be roaming freely in their habitat. http://www.petitiononline.com/golfinho/petition.html
