A tradition from the Faroe Islands (Denmark) 1,428 white-sided dolphins have been killed in a single day. Each year, pilot whales and dolphins are slaughtered as part of the centuries-old traditional hunt for Grindadrap.
The animals are hunted for hours by hunters using boats and jet skis until they are stranded and helpless on the beach.
Hunting in the North Atlantic islands is not commercial and is authorized, but environmental activists they criticize their cruelty. Some Faroese people who defend the hunt say that this time it will attract unwanted attention because It has been more bloody than the previous ones.
The people of the Faroe Islands kill about 1,000 mammals annually sailors, although last year only 35 were slaughtered.
