Horrifying sea of blood as fisherman chase whales onto beach in the Faroe Islands and locals gleefully stab them to death

whales2Although whaling is illegal in Denmark, there is an annual whale hunt that is permitted in the Faroe Islands, known as the grindadráp. The locals cruelly massacre the poor beasts using harpoons and knives.

The Daily Mail reports,

The horrific scenes were filmed by activists from Sea Shepherd, a non-profit, marine wildlife conservation organisation.

As the innocent whales are forced to swim towards the beaches, the locals begin to run down from the jetty towards the sea.

Realising they are unable to escape, the whales slow down as the fishermen in their power boats and dinghies begin to close in on the large school of whales.

The locals, many of whom are dressed in full wetsuits and bobble hats, wade into the water and begin to violently drag the distressed animals up the beach.

Whilst the pilot whale may not be endangered, the level of brutality and depraved violence is shocking.

It is disturbing that such a barbaric practice is still taking place in a civilized country. The men in the photos look well off and modern. There is no excuse why such a demented tradition needs to continue today. If whales need to be exterminated for population control or meat, it should be done humanely. These men should be ashamed of themselves. Fortunately, protesters from Sea Shepherd Global showed up and are drawing international attention to this atrocity. Below is one of the protesters being arrested after he ran out on the beach.
