Free Cove Guardian Erwin Vermeulen.
On Friday December 16th Cove Guardian Erwin Vermeulen was arrested in Taiji, Japan, while attempting to take photos of Risso’s dolphins being transferred from holding pens in the sea to the Dolphin Resort Hotel. Police claim Erwin shoved a Hotel employee, Erwin denies using violence.
The arrest seemed pre-planned. No witnesses saw Erwin shove the employee and Erwin was not even questioned. The police simply approached him and took him away. Out of compassion for the dolphins being slaughtered in Taiji, Erwin Vermeulen travelled to Japan at his own expense to devote his time and energy to the Cove Guardian mission.
The Cove Guardians are in Taiji to document the annual Dolphin
