The fifteenth pod of Risso's dolphins was slaughtered during the annual dolphin hunt in Taiji, Japan over the weekend - one rare albino Risso's dolphin was taken for captivity in a marine park. But while the albino dolphin was being captured, his family was killed for meat.
Activists watched from the shore as the pod was driven into nets towards the infamous cove, the site of the 2009 documentary with the same name. Fishers killed 11 dolphins under covered tarps and brought three juveniles out to sea in slings for release. Calves are often released in this manner after losing the members of the pod from the hunt - their survival rate is very low.
Activists from the group Sea Shepherd captured this photo of the animal being brought to the pen:
