The group Blackfish tried this, cutting the nets in the harbor (not the Cove), and they failed.

Scott and Elora West and the Cove Guardians have a difficult and horrible task in Taiji. They cannot physically release the dolphins, but they are there to document the atrocities and report on the numbers slain. Any attempt to release a dolphin will simply result in the Cove Guardians’  permanent removal from the situation.

It is not fair for people who are not there to pass judgment on those who are there.

What we must do is to stand our ground at Taiji and to keep the killers under surveillance. We must continue to express our outrage to the Japanese consulates and embassies around the world. We must not allow this horror to be unobserved or forgotten.
