A video has emerged on Youtube of the September 11 slaughter of 210 white-sided dolphins, which took place in the village of Hvalvík. The video has sparked outrage as it, rather controversially, captures a man who spends several minutes trying to kill one of the dolphins by stabbing it with a knife.
Faroe Islanders – and fans of Faroese folk metal band Týr – are not so popular among anti-whaling activists due to obvious reasons. This became once again clear yesterday when a random Faroese Týr fan was allegedly subjected to a vitriol of vile abuse from a Sea Shepherd supporter standing on a train station platform in Aarhus, Denmark.
