Several years ago, correctional officers employed solitary as a means of punishment for prisoners. Subjecting a living thing to loneliness is a form of punishment, and it is alarming why anyone would do that in this day and age.

What is even more distressing is that it is being done to a harmless creature: a dolphin.

As reported by Force Change,  a dolphin named Honey, who was captured in 2005, has been confined to a small tank in Inubosaki Marine Park, Choshi city.

Many of her species were endangered during the hunt as they were lured into a cove close to the port town of Taiji. However, a recent update about the dolphin is the crux of this matter.

After being detained for 13 years, Honey's ordeal went from bad to worse. The 2011 earthquake and nuclear crisis in Japan took its toll on the aquarium, and they were forced to close due to a backslide in attendance.

Closing meant Honey was neglected and is still trapped in the aquarium. In fact, many other animals, including 40 penguins, are at bay.

Although they are being catered for by a small group of people for a meager hour, they need not be prisoners anymore. The only silver lining these creatures have is the ongoing petition directed to the chairperson for the Japanese Association of Zoos and Aquariums, Yutaka Fukuda.

The appeal is intended to coerce the chairperson to take necessary actions to protect these creatures.

Fortunately, signing the petition is easy. The only step required is to visit the website. The letter has been prepared, so all you have to do is to sign it. Dolphins are exceptional social creatures, and it should be a crime to restrict them to confinement.

Solitary is a strain on their mental health, and the small tanks reduce their physical abilities. It is awful that poor Honey has to suffer such fate. Let’s all work together for her to have her freedom back.

Compassion is the distinctive feature of a human being, let’s not lose it. Here is another powerful story to prove it.
