The Hayden Panettiere trying-to-save-the-dolphins story seems to be picking up steam everywhere you look. (For a recap, click here.) Gossip blogger Perez Hilton managed to get his hands on some ITN news coverage showing the “Heroes” star and her fellow activists paddling through the water on surfboards and a gaggle of furious Japanese fisherman trying to stymie (and/or injure) them with their boat propeller.

The footage is not for the faint of heart. If the sight of dolphins in bloodied water isn’t heart wrenching enough for you, the sight of Hayden breaking down while describing the experience should have an effect on you.
I have a hunch we still haven’t heard the end of this story. But let’s hope the endless media coverage and the young star’s efforts will have a positive effect.
In the video a very shaken Hayden, tells the camera’s about her experience in the water with the dolphins. She says the dophins where looking up out of the water and she could see a baby and can’t believe that baby is no longer with us, because of this slaughter.”
