I don't usually do this but I just have to this time. I was doing my usual web-surfing and site-crawling then I came across the pic you see below.
According to the uploader, this was a ritual in Denmark.
The sea is stained in red and it is not because of the climate effects of nature. It's because of the cruelty of the human beings (civilized human) who kill hundreds of the famous and intelligent Calderon dolphins.
This happens every year in Feroe Island in Denmark . In this slaughter the main participants are young teens.
A celebration, to show that they are adults and mature!
In this big celebration, nothing is missing for the fun. Everyone is participating in one way or the other, killing or looking at the cruelty supporting like a spectator.
Is it necessary to mention that the dolphin Calderon, like all the other species of dolphins, it's near extinction and they get near men to play and interact. In a way of PURE friendship.
They don't die instantly; they are cut 1, 2 or 3 times with thick hooks. And at that time the dolphins produce a grim cry like that of a new born child.
But he suffers and there's no compassion while this magnificent creature slowly dies in its own blood
I'm not an animal specialist but from the little I know about dolphins, they are loving animals and killing them is no way of showing MATURITY to me.
