The Dolphins Cry

Posted: January 27, 2012 in Animal Cruelty, Dummy Spits, Uncategorized, World News and Events

A warning before I start, there are images which may upset some, so proceed with caution…

I was forwarded an email by a friend recently that I wanted to share, I have changed some of the wording, but you will get the gist…. after all a picture tells a thousand words.

Some of you may have seen the Academy Award Winning documentary “The Cove” for those of you who haven’t, here’s a link to the preview.

There are also many who would assume that this slaughter of whales and dolphins is only performed by the Japanese… You would be wrong.

The following images are from the Faroe Islands, which are a part of Denmark. Yes that’s right Denmark, a Western Country.

The sea is stained in red and it is not because of climate effects or nature. It’s because of the cruelty of the human beings (civilised human) who kill hundreds of the famous and intelligent Calderon dolphins.

This happens every year in The Feroe Island in Denmark. In this slaughter the main participants are young teens.
 You may well ask
It is a celebration, to show that they are adults and mature!

Although the dolphins aren’t celebrating, and neither should we.

In this big celebration, nobody misses out on  the fun. Everyone gets to participate in one way or the other, either killing or cheering on the cruelty from the shore like a fan at a footy match.

At this point I feel it is necessary to mention that the Calderon Dolphins, are near extinction and they get near men to play and interact.
It is their way of showing and offering their friendship

Alas, these poor creatures 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.

There is no compassion or mercy while this magnificent creature slowly dies in its own blood

I hope, like me, you have had enough of this type of treatment of these glorious creatures.

What can you do?

For starters pass this around, and get the word out there.

Then if you feel strongly enough below are the detail of the Embassy in Australia.

    Hi Wixxy,

    Just passing through, reading some of your columns. I am bemused though, as to why you would include the address of the Netherlands Embassy in Australia. Your article states this ritual takes place in the Faroe Islands, which is Danish territory.

    Have you considered the grief this could cause the Dutch embassy due to a simple error?

      Hi Will,

      If I had a gold watch as a prize, you would get it….
      I can’t believe nobody else has noticed….
      I have fixed it now, for some reason I her Danish & Dutch mixed up all the bloody time…
      Thanks so much for letting me know.

    No Worries!

    If any letters were sent to the wrong embassy, they just go in the paper shredder.
