People in the Faroe Islands are dying from eating pilot whales and don’t even know it. The majority of these whales have been proven to be contaminated by mercury. The Faroese government is putting the health of consumers at risk by allowing the sale and consumption of highly controversial whale meat to continue despite repeated scientific warnings over the foodstuff's high levels of contamination from mercury and other chemicals.

DID ANYONE WATCH THE SERIES OF *WHALE WARS* ABOUT THIS
DISGUSTINGLY CRUEL " TRADITION " ???

QUITE INTERESTING !!!
THE ISLANDERS, ACCUSED THE SEA SHEPHERD GROUP & IN PARTICULAR,
PAUL WATSON, OF BEING TERRORISTS !!!

ONLY B/C THE SS GROUP WERE THERE TRYING TO GET IN THE WHALERS WAY !!!

THE ISLANDERS, BELIEVE THEY HAVE A RIGHT, TO CONTINUE AN OLD,
OUT-DATED, TRADITION, THAT WAS ONLY STARTED, B/C THE PEOPLE
WERE STARVING, :
THEY HAVE OTHER FOOD CHOICES NOW, BUT, CLAIM THEY LOVE THE
TASTE OF WHALE MEAT !!!

THEY SEEM OBLIVIOUS TO THE * CRUELTY * SIDE OF WHAT THEY DO,
IN FACT, THEY CLAIM, THE DEATH IS QUICK & PAINLESS !!!

WELL, I GUESS, THERE'S NO LAW, AGAINST LIVING IN * LA, LA, LAND *,
IS THERE ???

THE MOST DISTRESSING THING, IS WATCHING YOUNG KIDS, BEING
ENCOURAGED TO *LEARN* HOW TO DO THE KILLING !!!

FINAL COMMENT, : IN TRYING TO UNDERSTAND THEIR REPULSIVE,
DETERMINATION, TO CONTINUE ON WITH THIS VILE PRACTICE, IT
DAWNED ON ME, THAT MAYBE, B/C THEY ARE ISLANDERS, THEY REALLY
CAN'T HELP THE WAY THEIR BRAINS WORK !!!

ISLANDERS = INBREEDING = GENETIC DEFORMITIES = DISABLED BRAINS !!!

Noted. It appears that I have previously "signed" the petition.

I intended to leave the comment: "Whales and dolphins are social and intelligent animals; they have a slow rate of reproduction, they are at the top of the food chain and have not adapted to being killed. There is no excuse for killing them."

Absolutely heinous cruelty and has no place in the 21st century! It is also against international laws protecting whales so these people are committing crimes against large numbers of marine mammals! Gives a terrible impression of the people on the Faroe Islands as barbaric and very unenlightened. I will continue to boycott them and everything that is made there and so will my friends and family and social media until they stop this horrific killing!

The act of killing which is not a necessity for survival is in flagrant defiance of the natural law, cruel, and thus condemnable as such.

If these whales can live peacefully without the islanders starving, as is apparently the case here, then the cetaceans are only being hunted for money (as though life was a commodity!), or, as the petition text says, for the sake of tradition. A tradition is fine and may be welcome unless it is a source of harm -- in such a case it is not worth being followed and should be abandoned. If a tradition is used as a pretext for acts of cruelty, which is commonly the case, shame on those who maintain it.

Isaac Bashevis Singer Nobel Peace Prize Winner wrote in his book, 'Enemies a love story', "As often has Herman had witnessed the slaughter of animals and fish, he always had the same thought. In their behaviour toward creatures, all men were Nazi’s. The smugness with which man could do with other species as he pleased exemplify the most extreme racist theories the principle that might is right. Lest we forget!
