The Japanese town of Taiji, known for the inhumane, reprehensible, and bloody annual slaughter of dolphins that was featured in the Oscar-winning documentary "The Cove", plans to open a marine mammal park. According to the mayor of Taiji, Kazutaka Sagen, "We want to send out the message that the town is living together with whales." People will be able to swim and kayak along side the dolphins in the cove, redecorated and disguised as a wildlife park, and where the mass killings will nonetheless continue.
