Anyone who's watched the 2010 documentary "The Cove" knows about the horrific dolphin hunts that happen in Taiji, Japan. Each year, Japanese fishermen capture hundreds - if not thousands - of wild dolphins by chasing them with boats, and hitting metal poles with hammers to create a wall of sound that traps the dolphins.
Once the hunters drive the dolphins into the cove, they slaughter them for their meat. The best-looking dolphins - that is, the ones who look like Flipper - are sold for large sums of money to dolphinariums, aquariums and swim-with-dolphin programs around the world.
In January 2014, the hunters spotted a rare albino baby dolphin swimming with her mother in a pod of about 150 dolphins. Knowing this dolphin would be extremely valuable as an aquarium exhibit, they drove the pod into the killing cove and caught the albino baby in a net. The baby dolphin was then motored to the nearby Taiji Whale Museum, a place notorious for keeping marine mammals in tiny, chlorinated tanks.
