Some have complained that my post on the snake slaughter gave them nightmares. If that’s you, do not click on this next link! I’m usually fairly tough about seeing grisly gore, but this video of a dolphin harvest in Japan is extremely unsettling. A slaughterhouse is always going to be an ugly piece of work, but what’s on display there is also callous indifference to the suffering of the animals, and methods that increase stress and pain. This video shows animals in agony. Even if I were to accept the argument that they are “mere” animals being processed for food, there is no excuse for the brutality of the methods.
