Panettiere protests Japan dolphin hunt November 2, 2007, 4:54 pm PDT

celebs: Hayden Panettiere


Associated Press

TOKYO - Hayden Panettiere and some fellow animal rights activists drew angry shouts and some shoving from fishermen in Japan when they tried to interfere with a dolphin hunt, according to video footage shot by the protesters.

The six activists from the anti-whaling group Sea Shepherd paddled out on surfboards to a cove in the town of Taiji in southwestern Japan on Tuesday to interfere with the annual hunt.

Fishermen on a boat approached the activists and ordered them to leave, shoving some of them with a long pole. An angry fisherman later shouted in the face of one of the protesters on the road above the cove. There did not appear to be any injuries.

"This baby stuck its head out and kind of looked as us, and the thought that the baby is no longer with us is very difficult," Panettiere, who stars in the NBC show "Heroes," said after coming ashore.

The local fishermen and their supporters say hunting dolphins in this case, pilot whales is a Japanese custom that outsiders have no business interfering with.

"Whales and dolphins are traditionally being used (as resources) in Japan," said Hideki Moronuki, chief of the whaling section at the Japanese Fisheries Agency. "In this light, we cannot accept an argument simply based on emotional causes."

About 14,000 dolphins are killed for food in Japan every year.

Coastal dolphin hunts usually involve herding groups of the animals into a cove using sonar equipment, or by banging metal rods in the water, creating a sort of acoustic barrier. The mammals are then trapped using nets and divers are sent in to kill them.

I would rather her be actually involved than I would for her to throw money at a cause and know NOTHING of the real problems.

people are weird. its ok for swordfish, tuna and sharks to be butchered and hacked up by the millions, but once you start killing an animal with a marketable cuteness factor, its a slaughter and a mass murder.

haha, I have heard that one, love it.


If I am going to save any creature that is in trouble, it will be the humans. Human babies will get my attention, my time, and my bucks waaay before anything else will.
