Shame on the Faroe Islands

Posted by CRISTINA CABAL DIAZ under General
This is clearly not my day . I have got up on the wrong side of the bed. Just this morning and it is only 11.27 I have had two very unpleasant experiences. First, I argued with my youngest son about school homework and then just now I have opened my e-mail and my kind sister has decided that a nice dish for breakfast would be slaughtered dolphins knowing as she knows that I am extremely sensitive to any kind of violence , more when applied to innocents. So that has made my day.
And really I have the impression that I am going to puke after having seen the images of dolphins being killed just for fun. Sorry, I am about to do the same to you  but I feel you need to know.
But a bit of history nicked from different sources on the Internet.
Every year around 2,000 whales are driven ashore and cruelly slaughtered in the Faroe Islands, mid-way between the Shetland Islands and Iceland. For centuries the Faroe Islanders have hunted pilot whales, driving entire schools into killing bays, where they are speared or gaffed from boats, dragged ashore and butchered with knives. 
The Faroese celebrate the butchery of their victims in an carnival atmosphere of entertainment. Indoctrinated from an early age, children are often given a day off school to watch the fun. They run down to the bay and clamber over the carcasses of slaughtered whales.
There is no worst beast than human kind!
