culture preservation vs animal wefare


A gory scene like this could only be seen in Faroe Island. 950 or so long finned Pilot whales will be killed annually here, mainly during summer as part of their grindadráp festival (Pilot whale slaughter).

In this small island, maybe they have had enough of kinky bubble party so they seek for adrenaline-pumping fun activities like this.

Most Faroese consider the hunt an important part of their culture and history but animal rights group as usual hit back by claiming that the hunt is unnecessary and cruel.

Well, I don't bother as long there is ongoing project by the authorities to ensure that the population of the species will not be threatened in near future. For Faroese I dont think they will care as long they could happily whaling while sing along to the chorus line *"Raske drenge, grind at dræbe det er vor lyst"

*Strong young lads, to kill the grind that's our joy

grindadráp festival;

i looked it up.
half-expecting to find it somewhat similar to our Qurban ritual which started from the story of our prophets.

but i couldnt. but i did find out that they actually consume the pilot whale; makan the meat, use the blubber for oil etc. but not sure that justifies thing or not.
