210 Atlantic White Sided Dolphins were killed in the Faroe Island’s Grindadráp hunt today in Hvalvik. This is the 11th hunt that has taken place on the islands in 2018. Local teenagers took the opportunity to celebrate by playing fully clothed in the dolphins’ blood. Tourism is the second largest source of income for the islands. Although the Faroese stand firmly in support of their #grind festivals, they conveniently censor these “celebrations” from their tourism marketing.
