⚠️ WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES OF ANIMAL CRUELTY ⚠️ After a break due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Faroe Islanders are back to their murderous ways that we posted about last summer too. Last night approximately 250+ pilot whales and possibly white-sided dolphins were cruelly slaughtered in the Faroe Islands, the autonomous province of Denmark. These ultra-social and very gentle animals are protected by the Bern Convention on Wildlife. The Faroese eat dolphin meat and defend a tradition called "Grindadrap", which allowed their ancestors to survive in a hostile climate. Today, their supermarkets are full of food of all kinds, the population does not lack anything, but the dolphin hunting persists anyway. On average, 800 cetaceans are killed each year in the Faroe Islands. WE MUST END THIS ANIMAL CRUELTY NOW! Please share this important post and help the world see what’s happening here as once we spread enough awareness and there is enough public outcry then barbaric traditions like this will stop once and for all. Sign the petition linked in our story and highlights to stop the hunting of dolphins and small whales, please share this post with your followers and tag people, celebrities and news media and tag people who need to see it and let’s get the word out to stop this animal cruelty from happening in the future! #endanimalcruelty #savethewhales #savethedolphins #karmagawa #savethereef

After a pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the whaling season continues and nearly 300 animals were killed this week.

Fishing ministry Jacob Vestergaard authorized the start of the season while warning fishers to avoid large gatherings.

Around 250 pilot whales and 35 white-sided dolphins were caught and slaughtered on the evening of July 15 near the village of Hvalba.

These ultra-social and very gentle animals are protected by the Bern Convention on Wildlife.

The Faroese eat dolphin meat and defend a tradition they call “Grindadrap,” which allowed their ancestors to survive in a previous hostile climate.

In the tradition of Grindadrap, fishers surround the animals in boats and trap them into the bay, before entering the water up to the waist to kill them with knives.

The Faroese government defends the practice, claiming that it’s sustainable and regulated.

Today … even though the environment is no longer hostile, an abundant choice of foods are available, and the population no longer needs eating whales and dolphins to survive … the barbaric tradition continues. 

On average, 800 cetaceans are killed each year in the Faroe Islands and at Karmagawa we believe this has to STOP NOW!
