Real Horror Films
I have avoided watching the film because, well, I am just a big old softy when it comes to watching animals die. It really pulls at my heart so I need to be in the most objective mood in order to view it, so not to take it personally. But how can you not take this personally?
I have had the pleasure of swimming with a dolphin out in the ocean. Brief, nowhere near what I experienced with a whale shark, but enriching to the soul nonetheless. The idea that people would corner these dolphins up and butcher them till they die is disgusting. And for no real good reason. To see the water, of what looks like a beautiful little beach, turn red from the blood of the dolphins is a little soul crushing to watch. I can't help but shed tears while I write this.
So if you are one for documentaries that shock, then you need to watch this. However if you are someone who would give something as horrific as this a skip, there is something you need to know:
Dolphins DO NOT belong in captivity.
