slaughtery of Dolphins in Denmark
bulk of dolphins been killed in Denmark
Though it may seem unbelievable, but even today this brutal, dantesque and bloody slaughter of dolphins are still carried out each year in the Faroe Islands which belong to Denmark. A country supposedly “civilized” and belonging to the European Union. For many it is unknown this attack to life, to the sensitivity and to everything. In this bloody slaughter involving the young men to show entering adulthood (!). Is absolutely incredible that there is nothing to prevent this barbaric act that is committed against the pilot whales, a dolphin that has the intelligent approach to people out of pure curiosity.
I live on the mid north coast of NSW, Australia and every day, before winter we see these beautiful creatures, passing by to go north to have their babies and at the moment they are traveling south with their babies. W e can see this extraordinary site numerous times almost everyday at this time of the year and although we can see it everyday we all still get so excited about the site, that is every human being in our country who see’s this wonderful sight. So how can human being on the other side of the world be so opposite and ruthlessly kill these wonderful creatures. I wonder if these cruel disgusting people saw how much we appreciate the sight of these wonderful animals playing with their babies just off our beaches.
The following images belong to a rite of passage to begin to be “man” who even today takes place in some parts of Denmark, a country of the European Union. The belief on the part of men that animals are things of use and discard is a relic of a haggard design that makes it as being for which purpose the earth was created (read homocentrism). It makes me impossible to justify this kind of torture.

In Yahoo answers someone wrote the following text for to justify this dantesc spectacle:
- They’re not dolphins, they’re whales.
- It’s not happening in Denmark, it’s happening in the Faroe Islands, an autonomous island with its own government.
- The whales they’re hunting is not an endangered species.
- This has been going on for hundreds of years, and it is not just some mindless slaughter, they eat the whales they kill. Saying this is wrong is just like saying eating hamburgers is wrong. I bet you more cows are killed for their meat than whales. Just because you don’t see it does not mean that it doesn’t happen.
Very nice, he told that this is not a slaughtering, – this is hunting!
Too he mentioned that Denmark don’t be related to the Faroe islands and that cows are wild and free living animals!
The Japanese dolphin slaughters
Every winter, thousands of dolphins are confined and brutally killed in small towns across Japan. Animal advocates and environmentalists considers this barbaric and condemns the slaughter. Fishermen often injure a few captives by spear thrust or knife slash to retain the group since dolphins never abandon injured family members. The water turns red and the air is filled with their agonising screams. They are then dragged to the slaughter place and their throats slashed and left to die. Dolphin meat are later marketed and often disguised as whale meat.
“Cove” is a doc about the ongoing covert slaughter of dolphins in Taiji, Japan
Sundance dolphin doc is really action thriller!
This documentary is really an action thriller whose filmmakers put themselves in great peril to document these brutal murders for the world to see. They also expose how dolphin meat, which is dangerously high in mercury content, is being sold to consumers in Japan under other names and has even been purchased by schools to be served in children’s lunches.
“Cove” is directed by Louie Psihoyos and the goals of this film were not only to make people aware that this secret slaughter of dolphins is going on in Japan, but also to make it known how highly toxic dolphin meat is.
“They eat at the same level as humans at the very top of the food chain,” Louie Psihoyos said. “Everything that human beings consume eventually ends up in the oceans — especially fossil fuels. The burning of coal is the number one contributor to the rise of mercury in the environment. There’s a cost to that — we’re degrading the oceans (and) diminishing the environment for future generations to enjoy. I used to eat seafood and I can’t eat large seafood anymore. I have mercury poisoning at 23 parts per million. High is five parts per million. We’re trying to alert people to what’s going on here.”
In the name of humanity I hope that someone in Japon, Denmark or everywhere in the world will have enough authority for to stop this bloody tradition!
