The Killing Cove

Friday, February 21, 2014

Reporter: Liz Hayes
Producer: Phil Goyen

You've seen the horrific pictures of the dolphin killing cove in Japan but now there’s a bigger prize being hunted.

The local fishermen have successfully caught a rare albino dolphin and are shopping it round with an asking price of half a million dollars.

It's the latest blow to animal cruelty campaigners.

Liz Hayes went to The Cove, where she found two Australians determined to bring an end to the mass slaughter.

What they encountered were heavy handed police, a government that doesn't care and a curious Australian who seems to be helping the Japanese.
