Supporters of the hunt say American objections are hypocritical because of the billions of animals raised in inhumane conditions on U.S. factory farms who are slaughtered every year. But many say that dolphin meat is unsafe to eat because it contains dangerously high levels of mercury. Many dolphins are sold to into captivity. Last year, a beautiful, rare albino calf nicknamed Angel was rounded up, and is currently in a museum in Taiji. We reached out to that museum for comment, but did not hear back. If sold into captivity, many estimate Angel could fetch up to $500,000.
