Blue Sea Turns To Bloody In Denmark After 800 Whales Slaughtered For “Tradition”

Human Beings have been practising cruel ways to mass slaughtered animals for their consumption for a long time.
The tradition of whale-slaughtering is an annual event that takes place in the Faroe Islands where the blue seas turn into the horrifying red colour when the sea is filled with the dead bodies of whales and dolphins.

It is a communal activity where all the locals get together to ruthlessly slaughter at least 800 whales and dolphins.

Pail Nolsoe, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade said

Whaling is a natural part of Faroese life. It has long since been internationally recognised that pilot whale catches in the Faroe Islands are fully sustainable.

How are the whales killed?

The fishermen enter the water in boats and as soon as pods of whales arrive close to the bay, they surround the whales and lead them towards land to be beached and slaughtered. When the whale is close enough, a hook is inserted into their blowhole to bring them further up the shore. Its neck is then stabbed with a spinal lance and its spinal cord is severed, which further cuts the blood supply to the brain. The whale loses consciousness and dies within a few seconds.

An entire pod of whales is killed in less than 10 minutes. The entire community pitches in the slaughtering while it takes place in place sight.

Reportedly, each whale is recorded and regulated by authorities and the Danish people claim that this practice is not cruel and is carried out in regard to international laws.

There have been petitions to ban the practice of whaling but in vain. Animal activists have been fighting this cause for a long time.

People on the Internet have also expressed their outrage over this. Look below to see what they want to say.
