With all due respect to Europe for opposing the Canadian seal
hunt, I humbly request that they also clean up their own act. The
following email from the Vancouver Animal Defense League about the
annual "Grind" in Denmark's Faroe Islands needs no verbal
DENMARK: What a shame ,They think the seal hunt is inhumane !!!!
CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS IS PART OF A COUNTRY THAT WANTS SEAL
Pass this on to your friends around the world!
It is OUTRAGEOUS!
WHAT DOES THE EU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS?
WHAT A SHAME, A SAD SCENE.
THIS MAIL NEEDS TO BE CIRCULATED.
While it may seem incredible, even today this custom continues,
in Dantesque, in the Faroe Islands, ( Denmark ) ...
A country supposedly 'civilized' and an EU country at that.
For many people this attack to life is unknown– a custom to
'show' entering adulthood.
It is absolutely atrocious.
No one does anything to prevent this barbarism being committed
against the Calderon,
a highly intelligent dolphin that is placid, and approaches
humans out of friendliness !!!
This happens in Denmark regularly. These are the Faeroe
