*Please Note: Upon sourcing further video documentaries than the ones I had watched and the endless amount of news articles by media and conservationists across the internet in order to share the facts surrounding this subject, I have found the need to edit and remove much of the original information I had uncovered, including titles and headlines due to what might be false allegations or dramatization by media.
I would also like to share this link with you to a well made and non-sided video documentary filmed in the Faroe Islands, enabling us to discover the life of the Faroese community, and decide for ourselves to agree or disagree with the want of the Faroese people to continue their bloody tradition: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oou3N5ylvdI
A message to any other people from Denmark and the Faroe Islands who want to verbally attack and try to insult me on some personal level, may I inform you that I do my best to source my blog information from many websites and news articles, and it’s not information I have made up or based on my own assumptions, so please direct your fury and arguments to the people responsible for writing the articles in future.
Here are just a few of the source links of my original information for your convenience. Thank you.
And there are many more!
What does it tell you when there are literally thousands of website links and articles with thousands and thousands of peoples opinions from around the world all expressing their disgust and want for this slaughter to stop, yet not one site to be found that represents this slaughter as good, right, or even allowed? Unless I haven’t found it yet! But just an observation.
Kangaboy’s view, in case your interested, is to help STOP this slaughter, hence the blog title. That’s because Kangaboy Universal Clothing stands for helping to Save Wildlife & Habitats, the conservation of what’s left, as much re-creation as we can of what has gone, and to help STOP animal cruelty as a whole.
Kangaboy Universal Clothing believe animals and habitats deserve rights, especially over ancient traditions, and that the people who love and respect them need to be their voice.
We have known for a long time now that whales are sensitive, social animals with highly developed nervous systems, and have a profound capacity to suffer distress, terror and pain. Each year, the Faroese kill 100′s, sometimes 1000′s of pilot whales and other small cetaceans.
If you’ve watched the Faroe Islands doco, signing the petitions to STOP the whale slaughter in the Faroe Islands is your decision:
Aside from the fact that the number of North Atlantic long-finned pilot whales is unknown and they are listed as ‘strictly protected’ by the Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats, this is an act of barbarism and pointlessness. By slaughtering 100 whales at a time, the Faroese are wiping out entire pods and family groups. They are removing building blocks from the gene pool of the species and damaging the web of life in the North Atlantic and the North Sea.
The drive hunt is a practice abandoned elsewhere many decades ago, and now outlawed by other European states. The inhabitants of the Faroe Islands have no subsistence need for whale meat, and much of the flesh is left to rot and be dumped; it cannot be exported, as it is polluted with heavy metals and other toxins and therefore cannot meet EU heath standards for human food.
According to ‘Faroese legislation’ it is also permitted to hunt certain species of small cetaceans other than pilot whales. These include: Bottlenose dolphin; Atlantic white-beaked dolphin; Atlantic white-sided dolphin; and Harbour porpoise (There are also specific regulations for the hunting of harbour porpoise. Harbour porpoises are killed with shotguns).
As said earlier, if you’ve watched this Faroe Islands doco, signing the petitions to STOP the whale slaughter in the Faroe Islands is your decision:
