The sea is stained red, but it is not some natural phenomenon.   

 

These people kill hundreds of these beautiful and intelligent creatures, the long-finned pilot whales, for fun. 

Wikipedia says: "Around 950 Long-finned Pilot Whales (Globicephala melaena) are killed annually, 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. The boats then drive the pilot whales slowly into a bay or to the bottom of a fjord."

All of this happens year after year in Faroe Island in Denmark. this is a regular celebration that hardly anyone misses. Everyone participates one way or another, by killing or by watching this cruelty. They are supporters by just being spectators.

It should be mentioned that the long-finned pilot whatles, like most types of dolphins and whales, get close to humans only to interact and play, a gesture of amity.

This is how the humans play: We all end up misusing and wasting things violently or destructively.

They don't die instantly, they are pierced again and again by large, sharp hooks. In those moments, the whales produce noises that sound so similar to a crying human baby.

But it suffers and there is no compassion until this docile creature bleeds dry and dies in its own blood.

It has been enough! It has been long past due since this cruelty has needed to be stopped. 

Please, help these kind and innocent creatures from dying out and put a stop to this brutality by signing this petition!

      This is domestic? I think not. I would have to call you cruel, evil, barbarians.

      It is time that this dreadfully cruel slaughter is stopped completely. They do not need to kill the whales to survive thes days.

      It is much more important to protect and conserve the Long finned Pilot Whales.

      Please stop killing them.

      I wanted to write a personal message but I am so horrified and sickened at this sight that I have no words to express my horror.
