The brutal event, Grindadráp, is when thousands of whales are killed across the Faroe Islands as the locals prepare for winter. See the gruesome pictures on Nexter.org. 

What’s Grindadráp and, God, WHY???

What seems to us a brutal and cruel thing to do is a common event for the residents of Faroe Islands. It’s an annual preparation for winter called “Grindadráp.”

The animals are gathered together and slaughtered by villagers as a tradition. Not a surprise, that the massacre of thousands of pilot and beaked caused the disturbance around the globe.

The Danish-owned Faroe Islands have really cold and severe winter.

The most painful part of the story is that the swim close to shore during their migration season, so they genuinely don’t expect that people would surround them and kill.

The sea is filled with hundreds of whale corpses with big holes in their bodies where the villagers have attacked them.

Cambridge University student Alastair Ward, 22, was visiting the Faroe Islands last month to celebrate his graduation and noticed this bloody picture. “We were walking round this bay when this family of locals ran over and said ‘you’re lucky, there’s a whale coming’.

“We thought it would just be one being dragged in but more and more boats kept appearing on the horizon.”

He added, “I couldn’t believe how many there were. They were driving them into the bay, prodding them with their oars.

“Once they got close enough, the whole town sprinted in and started hacking at them.”

Also, children take part in this annual preparation for food, “Even the children were getting involved, pulling on the ropes and jumping on the carcasses.

“We were just sat there speechless and a bit upset but you couldn’t really pull yourself away.”
