In Taiwan dolphin meat has been illegal since 1989, yet, in some areas, it remains a staple of the Taiwanese diet. What was the purpose then, of banning the sale of dolphin meat? International pressure. Dolphin has been a part of their culture for centuries, making it difficult to abolish the practice. The Taiwanese government has the law in order to keep up appearances, but it is difficult to tear people from their roots. Taiwanese fisherman don't even feel sorry when they kill dolphins because the dolphins follow their boats around and eat their fish.
Dolphins are such jerks. For a multitude of reasons actually. They kill baby porpoises for fun, using echolocation to find their vital organs so that the maximum amount of damage is inflicted.They also kill their own babies, infanticide is quite common among the dolphin species. Most terrifyingly of all though, dolphins don't sleep. They can stay awake for 5 days straight. This means that they could murder baby porpoises for 120 hours straight.
For these reasons I say we pressure the Taiwanese government to abolish the law forbidding the sale of dolphin meat. Heck, we should all start eating dolphin meat. Let's make a pact to cleanse the sea of those filthy varmint. Die dolphins.
