Killer whale accident movie "BLACKFISH"

April 15, 2014
We, Inuneko Kyusainowa oppose to cruel dolphin hunting (both for food and for aquarium) in Taiji, Wakayama.

Dolphin hunting is cruel and also not safe as food as it has so much mercury.
If the dolphin is brought to aquarium, parent and child are separated by force and training with suffer continue.

The movie called “BLACKFISH” taking a subject of training killer whale.
This is shocking movie and had an impact on people.
This also influence with aquarium business.
Unfortunately “BLACKFISH” is not planned to screening in Japan.

“BLACKFISH” promotes the discussion about captured killer whale Tilikum and the death of 3 people.
Also it criticizes the training of marine animal in Sea World.
Isn’t using killing whale and dolphin for the show in aquarium animal abuse?
In fact, isn’t the accident in aquariums hiding?
USA is now in confusion of doubt.

Such argue in USA suggest the decline of show business with killer whale and dolphin.
Dolphin hunting has problems as for food and show business.
We Inuneko Kyusainowa strongly against with dolphin hunting.
Thank you for your cooperation.

About Us

Message from Akiko Yui, President and Founder of TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital
I believe that helping animals in need, existing in symbiosis with animals, and fostering a loving heart lead to an improvement in one’s character of kindness and generosity. The killing of animals due to decisions made by administration goes against my firm belief in preventing cruelty to animals. Animal Rescue Fund’s most important goal is to reduce the number of animals killed in Japan to zero by urging administration to change, reform, and improve the prevention of cruelty to animals. In order to reduce the number of animals in need, we work to raise awareness and support for the importance of sterilization operations. Each year, we spay and neuter more than 1000 stray cats. We are always putting animals up for adoption to help those lives already born in finding a loving home.

TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital:
We first opened our TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital in February of 2011 in an effort to make our dream a reality - to lower the number of dogs and cats killed in Japan to zero. At our hospital, we spay and neuter cats to reduce the number of unfortunate stray cats. Our hospital strives to help unfortunate animals in need of medical care.
The lives of numerous pets and livestock were lost as a result of the unprecedented earthquake and tsunami that occurred in Japan on March 11th 2011 and the radiation disaster caused by the stricken Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Animal Rescue Fund goes directly to the 20km evacuation zone around the stricken Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant to rescue animals.
Animal Rescue Fund is based in Kanagawa Prefecture’s TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital. Therefore, the animals that we rescue from Fukushima Prefecture are brought to TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital located in Kanagawa Prefecture. Here, the rescued animals receive medical care and are returned to their owners or are put up for adoption.
We also work in urging the government and administration of Japan to support the protection of animals in need.
