SEA OF BLOOD: Hundreds of whales and dolphins slaughtered and dragged ashore in horrifying hunts
THE SUN – PAUL HARPER
Horrifying images show hundreds of whales and dolphins being slaughtered and dragged ashore alive in hunts off the Faroe Islands.
Activists from Sea Shepherd Global pictured the horrific scenes on the Danish archipelago halfway between Norway and Iceland.
Fishermen drive herds of pilot whales and Atlantic white-sided dolphins into shallow waters.
They are then killed through a spinal lance that is driven through the animals’ neck to break their spinal cords.
Volunteers, posing as tourists, watched nine hunts from July to September that they claim wiped out 198 dolphins and 436 whales.
One Sea Shepherd volunteer told Fox News: “Witnessing a grind first hand was truly an eye-opening experience.”
