Pregnant pilot whales die in Faroe Islands hunt

Sixty three long-finned pilot whales were driven onto a beach and brutally killed over the weekend in the first hunt of the year in the Faroe Islands.

The hunt took place at Sandágerði in the capital Tórshavn. Several of the whales were pregnant females.

The infamous drive hunts take place every year with several hundred pilot whales, as well as other whale and dolphin species, hunted in a cruel tradition that receives international condemnation.

In recent years, concerns have also been raised about the health implications for eating whale meat which can contain high levels of contaminants.
