According to a reporter at the Mainichi newspaper, Taiji fishermen failed to find dolphins on September 1st, but today, September 2nd they drove about 20 dolphins into Hata(ke)jiri bay - aka The Cove. They are going to sell them (not all of them) to aquariums and release those they don’t sell.
Just what this means is open to speculation. The fishermen did this last year when there were a lot of press people in Taiji. When the press left they resumed the slaughters. We are trying to determine if there are press there this year and will keep you informed.
