The hunt, often called the ‘grindadráp’, was held over the weekend with native whalers focusing on an enormous pod of white-sided dolphins. The Danish autonomous Faroe Islands stay the final territory in Europe allowed to hunt marine mammals, because the grindadráp is taken into account to be an instance of conventional “aboriginal whaling.”
During the grindadráp, dolphins are herded by motorboats towards the shore the place whalers have interaction the animals in brutal melee. The dolphins are slaughtered with harpoons, assorted blades and even energy instruments.
According to native media, a complete of 1,428 dolphins have been killed in the course of the hunt. Footage from the scene circulating on-line exhibits a number of boats herding the dolphins to their demise, with the tides operating pink with blood.
