Danes Kill Dolphins for Fun?

All this is unverified. I have no idea as to the facts of this allegation. If anyone has, please add a comment with links if possible. What is a slur for a Dane?

This is true. Additionally, pilot wales are also beached and slaughtered. It happens on the Faroe Islands every year. The islands are technically part of Denmark but independent from certain Danish laws. Many Danes are strongly against these massacres.

And the the Faroese hunters and their children are being slowly poisoned by the mercury, PCBs and DDT in the meat of the slaughtered animals. Just a sad, sad story all around.

The Faroes and Denmark
The Faroe Islands have been under the control of Denmark since 1388. The Treaty of Kiel in 1814 terminated the Danish-Norwegian union and Norway came under the rule of the King of Sweden, while the Faroe Islands, Iceland, and Greenland remained possessions of Denmark. Subsequently, the Løgting was abolished in 1816, and the Faroe Islands were to be governed as an ordinary Danish amt (county), with the Amtmand as its head of government. In 1851 the Løgting was reinstated, but served mainly as an advisory body until 1948.

Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, the reigning monarch of the Faroe Islands.
At the end of the Second World War some of the population favored independence from Denmark, and on 14 September 1946 a referendum was held on the question of secession. It was a consultative referendum: the parliament was not bound to follow the people's vote. This was the first time that the Faroese people had been asked whether they favored independence or wanted to continue as a part of the Danish kingdom. The result of the vote was a narrow majority in favor of secession, but the coalition in parliament could not reach agreement on how this outcome should be interpreted and implemented; and because of these irresoluble differences, the coalition fell apart. A parliamentary election was held just a few months later, in which the political parties that favored staying in the Danish kingdom increased their share of the vote and formed a coalition. Based on this, they chose to reject secession. Instead, a compromise was made and the Folketing passed a home-rule law, which came into effect in 1948. The Faroe Islands' status as a Danish amt was thereby brought to an end; the Faroe Islands were given a high degree of self-governance, supported by a substantial financial subsidy from Denmark.
At present the islanders are about evenly split between those favoring independence and those who prefer to continue as a part of the Kingdom of Denmark. Within both camps there is a wide range of opinions. Of those who favor independence, some are in favor of an immediate unilateral declaration. Others see it as something to be attained gradually and with the full consent of the Danish government and the Danish nation. In the unionist camp there are also many who foresee and welcome a gradual increase in autonomy even while strong ties with Denmark are maintained.

I can understand you feeling sorry for the Pilot Whales watching these pictures, but some of you cut'n pasting this story come about as naive and out of touch with reality.

The Faroe Islands is a autonomous province of Denmark, and as such Denmark only has the responsebility of military defence and foreign affairs. The faroese decide for themself wether they should stop hunting Pilot Whales - send your petitions to the Faroe Islands.

The faroese traditionally rely on Pilot Whales as a food source, even though some reports surgest the level of mercury is high in some groups of whales, and even though some of you claim they do not use the meat and blubber.

The hunt is not a sport, and it only happens if a group of Pilot Whales are spotted near the coast - the whole community takes part. They are driven towards the coast by boats trying to block them from the sea. If a whale escapes you're not allowed to hunt it. The hunt is strictly organised and have a set of rules to be followed.

The whales are killed by experienced men not teens, and has nothing to do with rituals. Young people take part, but are lead by older experienced men.

The meat is distributed amoung the hunters and villagers. If anything is left they donate it to elders and hospitals.

0-1000 are killed each year. The authorities ban further hunting when the need of meat is filled.

The Pilot Whales do not scream like babies.

They have to slaughter them in the water, giving the journalists great scenario pictures. If you drove 200 cows out in the ocean and slaughtered them there the pictures would be just as cruel, giving spectators the impression a blodbath is taking place.

I agree with you that this is an extremely shameful practice but please do not call these barbarians Danes, we have nothing to do with the Faroe Islands practices and I personally am horrified by it.
