Dolphins Chopped Up And Skinned Alive
Hundreds of thousands of dolphins are harpooned, skinned alive, and hopped up to be used as bait to lure sharks to boats. Then the sharks have their fins cut of to be used in shark fin soup, before being thrown alive back into the ocean to drown.
This practice takes place in Peru and despite dolphin killings being banned in 1996, enforcement is so lax that up to 10,000 dolphins are still slaughtered every year.
Help stop the senseless slaughter of these intelligent animals by signing this petition to urge the Peruvian government to enforce the ban on dolphin meat and prosecute fisherman who kill them illegally.
