Sea Turns Red As 800 Whales Are Brutally Slaughtered In Annual Tradition

The same is practiced EVERY YEAR in Faroe Islands where people come together to kill hundreds of dolphins and whales.

Forget dinosaurs and megalodon, human beings are the most terrifying creatures to ever walk the earth.

Every year, the sea surrounding Denmark changes its color from blue to red and the reason will have you gasp in disbelief. Hundreds of people gather around the shore and brutally murder whales and sharks in the name of tradition. A team of fishermen goes deep into the sea in order to catch poor baby whales and sharks ready to be slaughtered. The fishes are then carried to the shore where people ruthlessly kill and slice them into pieces.

This mass hunt is an annual event in the Faroe Islands which means, thousands of these creatures are murdered EVERY YEAR. According to DailyMail, every summer, more than 800 whales and dolphins are killed by hunting spears as people teach their children how to hunt and kill a whale. As the fishes are dragged closer, people slice them open by knives, shards, and spears, jumping in joy as the sea cries tears of blood.

Shocking and heartbreaking pictures of the event have gone viral on the internet and people across the globe are outraged. Several animal rights activists have urged the government to stop this heinous act and are running campaigns to protect the ones who can't speak for themselves. Blue Planet Society, who is already campaigning to save whales from being killed in Japan, is also doing its part and asking the mass hunt to be stopped immediately.

So far, about 500 whales have been killed by people already and it is unbelievable what people do these days in the name of traditions and religion.

"150-200 pilot whales and 20-40 white-sided dolphins were brutally and cruelly slaughtered in the Faroe Islands today. Approximately 500 cetaceans have now been killed "for food" in these islands since the beginning of 2019. The Faroe Islands are part of the Kingdom of Denmark (an EU country). Both pilot whales and white-sided dolphins are protected in the EU," the activist page wrote on Facebook.

'Whaling' has been existing for years now and can be traced back to the late 16th century. In the event, pods of whales are trapped and taken to shallow waters where residents spear them and slice their necks. The same is done for food and to teach the younger generations how to hunt. While to some, it might seem 'okay' to kill an innocent animal for consumption, there is absolutely no need to torture these poor animals and killing in such huge unnecessary numbers.

'Stop the massacre of whales and dolphins during the period of the famous GRIND HUNT in Denmark and surrounding areas especially in FAROE ISLANDS. Pilot whales are the main target in the Faroe waters, though no whale or dolphin is safe as the Faroe people have hunted and decapitated many different species. Pilot whales are amount the most social and intelligent whale, the 'Grind' involves pods (families of whales) being herded into the shallow beaches where Faroe people are ready and waiting with hooks that are put into the blow holes, then the whale is dragged on to the beach and has its had cut of wig a simple hand knife, this takes time as the whale struggles and has many layers of fat and muscle to get through, it is simply a barbaric act that needs to be investigated and judged by the public as this is happening in EU waters!' reads the petition which aims at putting an end to this mass cruel practice.
