Five Beached Bottlenose Whales Slaughtered by Whale Killers in the Faroe Islands - Sea Shepherd Conservation Society

Five Beached Bottlenose Whales Slaughtered by Whale Killers in the Faroe Islands - Sea Shepherd Conservation Society | Oceans and Wildlife | Scoop.it

In the early hours of yesterday morning, five bottlenose whales were found stranded on the Faroese island of Suduroy. In most places around the world, cetaceans who are stranded in shallow waters are given a helping hand by humans and ushered back out to sea. However, rather than make an attempt to rescue the beached pod, knife-wielding Faroese whalers killed and butchered the stranded, helpless whales, turning the bay to a sea of blood.
