INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Every year in the Faroe Islands, innocent and helpless piloe whales are slaughtered brutally. Why you may ask? Simply for a pointless and stupid rite of passage to manhood.
What point is there in killing another living being just to prove you have "evolved," that you have transcended. There is simply no need.
These poor pilot whales are stabbed a number of times. And as if that weren't enough, they bleed to death, probably in excruciating pain while the whole town watches.
Needles to say, killing a defenseless animal is no proof of anybody's manhood.
So, I urge, as I am sure many more have, to stop this nonsense and take action.
Never ever has killing another creature, another living being with whom we share this world, done any good, to anyone. So let's stop it.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
