Transcript of Hunted for Fun, Left to Die

*Hunted for Fun, Left to Die* This article was written to inform readers
of what is happening to the poor defenseless
dolphins and what some people are doing to stop it. Hardy Jones unfortunately has to videotape the process and it takes us through the amazing but disturbing journey of dolphins. *The Main Idea* "The film reveals how humans can threaten this dazzling animal. And it proves that
we can help them, too.'' (Page 8) Vocabulary

Deceptive- misleading or trying to deceive.
“The accompanying photographs feature excited guests clinging to dolphins, which appear to be smiling with delight. But such images are deceptive. Dolphins don't smile as humans do.”(page8)
Disoriented- confused with things like time or place.
“When Blue Fields hit the water, he seemed disoriented, as though he had just woken from a nightmare. ” (page8) Harrowing- extremely agonizing or distressing “Nobody knew if the dolphins would survive the journey. What ever happened to them, though, Jones would make sure the world knew their harrowing story.”(page6) Lavished- To use or give in great amounts.
“Mothers lavished their attention to their calves.”(page7) Stewards- a person who manages another’s property or financial affairs like a caretaker or guardian.
“Interactive programs are educational
and inspire guests to be better stewards to the environment." (page9) Slather- to spread or apply thickly

"The team slathered them with cream to
protect them from the glaring sun and
cooled them with sea water to prevent
over heating." (page 6) Ordeal- experience or trial
“The film footage he shot of their ordeal has already been seen by millions of people.”(page8) Accredited Accredited- Officially recognized as
meeting the essential requirements.

"The majority of dolphins-almost 70 percent
cared for by alliance members-are born in accredited facilities." (page9) Stringent Stringent- strict, precise, or severe. “The alliance has stringent standards and guidelines that ensure animals receive excellent care.”(page9) For example, Tarshis wrote, "Dolphins continue to face serious threats, however, from ocean pollution, climate change, and overfishing to continued hunting, in parts of Africa, Asia, and South America.'' (page 8) Her tone is mostly
serious, it's also informative because she gives a lot of info on dolphins and their capture and slaughter. Tarshis'
Tone? And now, here's a video that will give you a closer look into what is actually happening to dolphins in Japan. Compare/Contrast the video and the article Are they the same? Written by: Lauren Tarshis Here are some advanced words we found in our article. Harrowing Slather Ordeal Lavished Stewards Deceptive Disoriented Thanks for Watching!!! By Jennifer, Maryam, Jailyn, and Carleon (Ladies first) Supporting Details "Jones' films inspired public outrage and led to many protests.'' (page 8)
"News of these hunts led Jones to travel to Japan, where he captured horrifying scenes of slaughter on film- men with harpoons and knifes stabbing at helpless dolphins that thrashed, shrieking in pain, as the waters turned bright red with dolphin blood.'' (page 7)
"For the past 33 years, Jones has made films
that show how human greed and carelessness
are threatening dolphins, one of Earth's most
intelligent and sensitive creatures.'' (page 6) "Since the late 1950s, tuna fishing has killed more than 7 million dolphins.'' (page 7)
"Even more brutal were the dolphins hunts taking place in Japan, where there is a long tradition of hunting and
eating dolphins.'' (page 7) ********** SAVE THE DOLPHINS!!! In addition to that she also mentions The Marine Park who talks all about their dolphin care. We know that this is Tarshis’s opinion because in the article it states “So when we started this story, we reached out to SeaWorld to get their point of view on dolphin hunts and swim-with programs.” (Page 9) Lauren Tarshis wrote the article Hunted For Fun, Left to Die. By reading this article I feel her purpose was to inform readers about dolphins. The reason for thinking that is because throughout the entire story all she talks about is the threats that dolphins have faced over the years. In our article we found two major statistical data statements. One of them is... "Indeed, 53 percent of wild dolphins die within three months of being captured.'' (Page 8) Another one is ... "Certainly some aquariums provide excellent care for their captive dolphins. But in the wild, dolphins swim up to 100 miles in a single day.'' (Page 8) Now that you've seen the video and heard about our article, lets discuss them both. The Video Hardy Jones emotions about the dolphins. More brutal and harrowing. Viewers get a better visual. In this video viewers can clearly see Jones' reaction to the slaughter. An example of that would be when he said, "I just said to myself, just keeping filming, just keep filming, and then get this film out of here.'' While watching this video you could see the amount of dolphins being captured and to us that's easier than just seeing a number. Although the video was very disturbing and sad to watch, people can really see the pain and suffering dolphins must face. A great example of that is when the film shows the red dolphin blood in the water and also the dolphins shrieking trying to get away. The Article More information Marine Park Association The article contains more informative and statistical data. In the article, Lauren Tarshis interviews The Marine Park association to get their point of view on dolphin hunts and swim-with programs. That's important because it gives readers another point of view to look at other than Lauren's. Yes, in a way the article and the video are alike. Both the article and the video tell the horrible story of dolphins. In addition to that, both of their purposes was to inform readers of the threats dolphins are facing. Which was more effective? By reading the article and watching the video, we feel that the video was more effective. Why? We feel that the video is more effective. The reason for that is because even though it doesn't have as much information as the article, seeing the poor dolphins suffer is really sad. Also, the article explains how bad Hardy Jones felt about videotaping the whole thing but in the video we could actually see his sorrow. In the end, we feel that witnessing the dolphins is more effective than just reading about it. All these 3 citations support Jones' film about what he captured on film that was truly sad. These citations support the fact that the dolphin killings are terrible and how many dolphins have died.
