Ceremonial Act Of Brutality And Blood
Each year the sea around Faroe Islands (constituent country of the Kingdom of Denmark, along with Denmark proper and Greenland), is stained red, not because of the effects of the climate or through a Biblical plague but because of the cruelty of supposedly human beings. Hundreds of the famous Calderon dolphins are slaughtered by young teens in a celebration to demonstrate their maturity and passage into adulthood. In this celebration those who not actively participating in the slaughter are watching. They don’t die instantly; they are cut 1, 2 or 3 times with thick hooks. With each cut the dolphins produce a grim cry like that of a new born child.
I can not stand and not to ask a question, is it possible that in this way someone shows the maturity? Does the brutal and unnecessary killing hundreds of dolphins shows wisdom? For me this is just confirmation of facts that comparison people with animals is insulting – for animals, of course!
