Second hunt of the season on Faroes

Reports from the Faroes indicate that a second hunt (or ‘grind’) has taken place there. On June 29th, 20-30 pilot whales were driven into the shore by boats and slaughtered in Hvannasund on the northern island of Vidoy. The first grind of the season occurred on June 6th in Midvagur on the island of Vagar, where at least 154 pilot whales were killed.

At least 3,837 pilot whales have been killed since the beginning of 2010, raising serious human health, animal welfare and conservation concerns. The magnitude of these numbers is staggering when considering the whale families lost to these cruel hunts. WDC is urging the Faroe Islanders to bring a permanent end to the hunting of pilot whales and other species of whales and dolphins.
