The Cove


“[A] living, breathing movie whose horrifying disclosures feel fully earned.”
The New York Times

“To watch bleeding dolphins struggle for their last breath, to actually hear their agony, is devastating. … [Y]ou feel culpable just for being part of the species that can teach another mammal tricks, reward it with snacks and pats and at the same time be capable of getting up at dawn to poke it to death with spears.”

“[O]ne of the most powerful, heartfelt, and (yes, I’ll say it) important ‘nature’ documentaries I’ve ever seen.”

“[T]he footage is so horrifying, the facts so disturbing. It’s not that you can’t believe it, but that you don’t want to.”
The Huffington Post

When this movie hits theaters near you, go!

    Seeing these acts breaks my heart. I cannot understand the cruelty and barbaric nature of people. The animals cruelty needs to stop and we must act to preserve the future. Band together and stand up against these acts together we will have the power to stop it. If you feel anything for animals or desire a brighter future for your children then unite and help make a stand against cruelty. If we unite as one voice they will have no choice but to listen. Stand together and fight for those who do not have a voice!

    This sounds really good and also sad as many animal rights films are. For the person speaking of whales previously watch Whale Wars on Animal Planet best new show ever!!!

  • Brien Comerford says:

    The Japanese sadists that spear to death screaming dolphins and continue to massacre whales are devils in human form. All animal torturers are demonic.

    god bless the human race i say that is so thoughtless and cruel. and please people remember TOPSY the elephant that poor thing also didn’t deserve that kind of punishment. good lord.

  • AAG says:

    I saw it today and it was heartbreaking. I am glad it was filmed because the world needs to see the slaughter and be privy to the lies that are trying to cover this horror up.

  • Brien Comerford says:

    If this poignant and grievous movie does not wake humans into enlightenment then there is no hope for humanity.

  • Rev. Meg Schramm says:

    Here are two films that are older I have them on video but worth every minute of your time A Cow At My Table and Lolita Slave To Entertainment. Both are excellent animal rights films.
