Australian woman Liz Carter captured this footage in Taiji, Japan. The video appears to show divers capturing a young bottlenose dolphin, separating it from its mother. The dolphin struggles to escape from its captors, as it is guided into a net.

Liz can be heard expressing her shock at the action; she is audibly distressed. Liz told Storyful that the captors in the video had driven a large pod of dolphins into shallow waters. She said that bottlenose dolphins are primarily caught in order to be sold on to marine parks.
