I have only seen excerpts of the movie "The Cove", I am completely unable to see such senseless (and very human) cruelty against defenseless, peaceful creatures. I'm not one of those who has to be convinced about humanity's continous acts of evil.

More information about their work, not only with the dolphins, can be found at The Sea Shepherd organisation's official website
