Whales Hunting bloody hell

Here we have a lovely photo of the the annual Faroe Island pilot whale hunt. According to National Geographic: “Unlike whalers in Norway, Russia and Japan who use huge ships, electronic tracking and powerful harpoons, Faroese men use what they always have – short knives and their bare hands.

And in the Faroes, the whales come to the hunters. No one knows when, where or if they will appear. ‘You could be sitting in your kitchen, having a cup of tea, and look out the window and see whales,’ one islander said.

When a pod is spotted offshore, men from nearby communities go out in small boats and herd the whales onto a beach, then jump into the water and cut the animal’s neck veins and spine. ‘The killing is swift — the whales die within minutes. But when you kill something in water, it is bloody.’” Horrible, sad and haunting. I can’t stop staring at the grotesque beauty of that red, red sea. (via the LA Times and Buzz Feed)
