"Today is September 1st, the first day of the dolphin slaughter season in Japan," O'Barry writes. "But when I arrived today by bus from Kansai Airport with media representatives from all over the world, the notorious Cove from the movie was empty. There were no dolphin killers in sight."
O'Barry also says there were a slew of Japanese TV news crews at the site, which is a huge deal, because Japanese media had never covered the slaughter until now.
"These TV stations have REFUSED to cover the story in Taiji for years and years," O'Barry writes. "NOW, for the first time, they have shown up, with cameras rolling. The head policeman talking with me even said, for the cameras, that the police are not there to support the dolphin killing fishermen. We shook hands, and they left.
"As I said, it is a good day for the dolphins. And for me personally, as the police only wanted to talk with me, not arrest me!"
