Dolphin Hunting in Japan

In Japan, the hunting is done by a select group of fishermen. When a pod of dolphins has been spotted, fishing boats move into position. One end of a steel pipe is lowered into the water, and the fisherman aboard the boats strike them with mallets. This is done at strategic points around the pod, in an effort to herd them toward land.

This is so twisted. Pretty sad. Learn more here.
