Hayden Panettiere breaks down, witnesses slaughter of whales

I couldn't believe how red the water was,” said Panettiere. “The whales were so scared. Hopefully their deaths won’t be in vain.”

I am so touched by what this gal is passionate about.

Hayden Panettiere is HERO in real life. So much so that she broke down in tears at a Japan beach when she saw how pilot whales were being slaughtered. Along with an international group of protesters, Hayden paddled out in a pre-dawn ceremony to honor over 25,000 dolphins killed each year in Japan. Unplanned, they witnessed up close, in blood-stained water, as Japanese fishermen slaughtered over 30 pilot whales.
