Denmark is a big shame.The sea is stained in red and in the meanwhile it’s not because of the climate effects of nature.
It's because of the cruelty that the human beings (civilised human) kill hundreds of the famous and intelligent Calderon dolphins.
This happens every year in Feroe Iland in Denmark .
In this slaughter the main participants are young teens.
A celebration, to show that they are adults and mature!
Main article: Whaling in the Faroe Islands
There are records of drive hunts in the Islands dating from 1584. It is regulated by Faroese authorities but not by the International Whaling Commission as there are disagreements about the Commission's legal authority to regulate small cetacean hunts. Hundreds of long-finned pilot whales (Globicephala melaena) could be killed in a year, mainly during the summer. The hunts, called "grindadráp" in Faroese, are non-commercial and are organized on a community level; anyone can participate. The hunters first surround the pilot whales with a wide semicircle of boats. Then they drive the whales slowly into a bay or to the shallows of a fjord. When a whale is in shallow water a hook is placed in its blowhole so that it may be dragged ashore. Once on land or immobilized in knee-deep water, a cut is made across its top near the blowhole to partially sever its head. The dead animals are then dragged further to shore after the remaining whales have been likewise killed.
This "grindadráp" is thought to be legal and provides food for many people in the Faroe Islands.
Some Faroese consider the hunt an important part of their culture and history. Animal-rights groups, such as the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, criticize it as being cruel and unnecessary, while the hunters claim in return that most journalists do not exhibit sufficient knowledge of the catch methods or its economic significance.
Makes me mad .
Culture or not , if you need food for survival thats one thing . we should have evolved from this "***(***$#^%%&)
I cant imagine if they own a cat or a dog that they would not see the innocence of the animals. ive always respected the northerners up there thats in my blood line.
