in September and have continued into November.

DOLPHINS ESCAPE IN TAIJI
"Divers from the European conservation organisation The
Black Fish have last night cut the nets of six holding pens in Taiji,
Japan, that were holding dolphins caught during a dolphin drive hunt a
few days earlier. During this hunt a number of dolphins were selected
for the international dolphinarium trade and transferred to these
holding pens. In rough weather conditions the divers swam out and cut
the nets of six of these holding pens, allowing a number of dolphins to
swim back out to sea."
