    Did anybody else catch the documentary on animal planet called The Cove .
    It was horrifying seeing all those dolphins being slaughtered . And to think when you eat it you get mercury poisoning !!?!

    I didn't see it, but from the way you put it, I guess I should be glad I didn't!.

    :hitThe man who made it was the trainer for the dolphin in the TV series "FLIPPER"
    He said that Flipper (Cathy) swam up to his arms and committed suicide. Dolphins do not have autonomous breathing. They can decide not to breathe. He also said that the environment dolphins are kept in have improved a lot since the making of Flipper as people have learned more about their needs. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I've heard about the film and I definitely will NOT be watching it. I really can't stomach things like that. Just knowing about it haunts me.

    EVERYBODY SHOULD WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!
    It shows us what is really happening in the world we live in and how many people are ignoring it.
    please everybody DON'T TURN A BLIND EYE ON WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND US.
    Stand up and do something to change this! OPEN YOUR EYES.

    Other great movies are..

    Sharkwater, this movie is filmed superbly and is less gory than The Cove.

    Earth and Home, both are greatly filmed and very informative.

    My ds started watching it but I made him change the channel before the killings I knew were coming.Unfortunatley I forgot it was on and switched to it just as they were killing the dolphins,and the cove water was pure red.So sad.People can be so stupid.
