Japanese Fisheries Minister Thinks Endangered Dolphins Should Be Hunted To Extinction

Out of touch Japanese fisheries minister Yoshimasa Hayashi expressed 'hope' that the controversial dolphin slaughter known as Taiji will continue despite Japanese aquariums' yielding to international pressure and stopping the procurement of the marine mammals caught by fishermen in Taiji town where the hunt is located.

Hayashi, the minister of agriculture, forestry and fisheries, told reporters that "I'd like to see to it that (the method) be implemented as it has been." Yet the world roundly condemns the hunt, which leaves waters in the cove blood red.

The Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums said Wednesday it will acquiesce to international demands and ban members from getting dolphins from Taiji after they faced expulsion from the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums because the slaughter is deemed cruel and inhumane.

Japan is the largest killer of marine mammals, routinely slaughtering rare whales, dolphins and porpoises for food while calling the killings 'research.'
