These European People Slaughter Dolphins And Whales For Fun. Shocking!

Dolphins, the adorable and extremely intelligent creatures increase the essence of an ocean. They are often seen playing with human beings. But it’s unbelievable to hear that people in the European countries entertain themselves by slaughtering these innocent dolphins. It happens every year in the Faroe Islands in Denmark.

This brutal bloody slaughter took place in the Faroe Islands, which belong to Denmark. To initiate into adulthood it is mandatory to kill a dolphin or a whale.

The main participants of this slaughter are young teens and they do so to portray that they are cool. This cruelty is certainly not a way to look cool and have fun. Let’s spread the word and unite to stop this inhuman act.

20,000 Dolphins are killed every year just for the sake of fun.

Dolphins keep screaming in pain, but it doesn’t affect these monsters.

Not only dolphins but around 700 whales are slaughted every year.

These dolphins come inland to play with humans without knowing that they are going to get slaughtered.

    Learn the facts, its not Denmark, its not dolphins, and its not a manhood ritual. Its for meat

    Firstly a few obvious corrections should be made. Number one: it’s
    not really Denmark we’re talking about here. This happens on the Faroe
    islands – an autonomous, self-governing region lying isolated in the
    Norwegian Sea midway between the UK, Iceland and Norway.

    Next, the
    main cetacean killed by the islanders is a long-finned pilot whale, not
    a ‘calderon’ dolphin, which doesn’t actually appear to exist outside of
    the articles I’ve seen posted today.

    Now neither of these facts
    make much difference to the argument of whether such slaughter is right
    or wrong but it’s a warning to those blindly trusting these pretty
    sensationalist article’s ‘facts’ on the issue.

    Now to the
    morality. This killing is not done, as reported by the articles, as some
    kind of ‘rite of passage’ by the islanders. Instead it allows the
    people of these pretty isolated islands, which have very little useful
    land to sustain land-based agriculture, an alternative food source to
    help them through the winter. The killing is not done for any commercial
    gain, with the meat only being distributed to and used by the local
    community.

    The type of pilot whale killed is not considered an
    endangered species and, with around 0.1% of the population killed each
    year, the hunt is deemed to be sustainable by the criteria of the IUCN
    (International Union for Converservation of Nature).

    Most
    importantly we should note that it is against the laws of the islands to
    cause any unnecessary suffering to these animals during the hunt. There
    are strictly enforced laws at each stage, with the pilot whales having
    to be sighted close enough to shore to prevent a lengthly pursuit and
    then being killed by hand in the shallows to prevent the type of
    non-fatal wound by harpoon as can be possible from whaling ships.
    Ultimately, the death of the animal is achieved by a cut to their spinal
    cord, through an artery, which though culminating in a lot of blood in
    the water, ensures that the animals die in around 30 seconds or less.

    Now
    this process is indeed gruesome. The pictures of the blood-red sea are
    shocking to most. But is this really more gruesome or more inhumane than
    the commercial intensive farming procedures commonplace throughout the
    developed world? If we are to question the ethics of those on the Faroe
    islands should we not also be questioning all farming procedures which
    cause the unnecessary death of animals?

    Your answer to this may be
    yes. Fair enough. It was my answer for around seven years when I was a
    strict vegetarian. I have since chosen to resume eating meat since
    ultimately I do not believe that the slaughter of animals itself is
    wrong. I do still think however that any lengthy and unnecessary
    suffering of animals is wrong and should be prevented wherever possible.

    My
    opinion would be that if, like we see in the slaughter of whales and
    dolphins on the Faroe islands, we can enforce all possible measures to
    reduce the suffering of animals slaughtered for human consumption then
    we will be making a huge leap of moral progress. In many areas I’d say
    our standards are actually lower than those maintained by the Faroese in
    these hunts. For a start, at least these pilot whales live a free and
    happy life before death. Perhaps our outrage could be better placed?”
