Stop the Denmark Dolphin and Whale Killing Festival!

For too many years Denmark has been allowed to carry on a barbaric and meaningless tradition that involves the brutal slaughter of over 800 dolphins and whales annually.

The hunters first surround the pilot whales with a wide semicircle of boats. Then they drive the whales and dolphins slowly into a bay or to the shallows of a fjord. When a whale is in shallow water a hook is placed in its blowhole so that it may be dragged ashore. Once on land or immobilized in knee-deep water, a cut is made across its top near the blowhole to partially sever its head. The dead animals are then dragged further to shore after the remaining whales have been likewise killed.

This happens every year in Feroe Island in Denmark. In this slaughter the main participants are young teens.

WHY?
A celebration to show that they are adults and mature!

These intelligent mammals don't die instantly and suffer a long death in the red stained waters.

Please help to end this unnecessary and horrible slaughter!!
