Boycott #Denmark , Faröer Islands and #AIDA who support this bloodily massacre!! Whale hunt Faeroe Islands' cruel, shameful tradition!! 

THE HUNT: The pilot whales that are not beached were often stabbed in the blubber with a sharp hook, called a gaff (in Faroese: sóknarongul), and then pulled ashore. But, after allegations of animal cruelty, the Faroese whalers started using blunt gaffs (in Faroese: blásturongul) to pull the whales ashore by their blowholes. As of 2012, the ordinary gaff is used only to pull killed whales ashore. The blunt gaff became generally accepted since its invention in 1993, and it is not only more effective, but it is also more humane by comparison to the other gaff. However, anti-whaling groups, such as Greenpeace and the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society (WDCS), claim that the partial blocking and irritation of the airway hurts and panics the animal.

In the next video, 5 minutes documenting parts of the pilot whale hunt having taken place in Sandur, Faroes Islands, on June 5th 2012, with about 120 pilot whales killed.
