dolphins mass hunt: 1400 dolphins Slaughtered In A Day In Faroe Islands Of Denmark: 1400 dolphins hunt in a day in the Faroe Islands of Denmark
In the Faroe Islands, owned by Denmark, there is a ruckus after the hunting of 1500 dolphins. An animal activist group has shared a video of hundreds of dolphins lying dead by the sea. So much blood has come out of these dolphins that even the shore of the sea is showing red color. It is being told that such a large number of dolphins have been hunted during a traditional hunting event called “Grind” held in the Faroe Islands.
stabbed to death in shallow water
Britain’s animal welfare group She Shepherd posted pictures of dolphin hunting on 12 September. The group reported that poachers first surrounded herds of dolphins and chased them towards shallow water and later killed them with knives and other sharp weapons. During this, the water of the beach started appearing red due to the blood coming out of the dolphin.
Grind is the traditional hunting program
Grind is a traditional hunting name. This tradition was started hundreds of years ago today. The event is held on the Far Faroe Islands, a Danish territory located halfway between Scotland and Iceland. This legally recognized hunt is held every year in the summer. It involves hand-killing of marine mammals such as pilot whales and dolphins. A knife or spinal lance is usually used for this.
1428 The Killing of the Dolphin
In a Facebook post on September 13, Sea Shepherd alleged that 1,428 dolphins were killed during the hunt. After killing the prey, these hunters eat its meat. But this animal welfare group claims that the number of dolphins is so high that their meat cannot be fully utilized. In such a situation, hunters have unnecessarily hunted these dolphins.
hunters admit their mistake
Olavur Sjurdberg, president of the Faroese Whalers Association, admitted to the BBC that it was a big mistake. He also said that it is not right to hunt dolphins in such large numbers. Bjarni Mikkelsen, a marine biologist in the Faroe Islands, said it was the highest number of dolphin killings ever recorded in the Faroe Islands. Earlier in 1940 a record 1200 dolphins were killed. According to data from Sea Shepherd, there were 463 long-finned pilot whales and 35 Atlantic Wide Shades dolphins killed in 2020.
