My mind, heart & soul can't understand such savagery... & pleasure to enjoy in "that kind of entertaiment"... far more beyond my capacity of understanding & accepting...

I can't understand this, it is so horrible and despicable (I have been using these adjectives too many times these days)! Something must be done about this!

Oh puleeeze don't pull out the traditional culture card out. You mean to tell me whales are the ONLY source of food, and course, that makes it ok.
Just suppose cannibalism was a tradition there...would that mean it's ok to hunt down tourists?
There are so many traditions that need to go away...child brides, female castration, setting bulls on fire, just to name a few.
It's done because it can be done. Hope every whale eater's teeth fall out.

This is terrible but if you eat turkey for Thanksgiving and Christmas, then you are supporting a hideous tradition and can't point a finger at someone else for killing an animal.

All it takes is a submarine loaded with torpedoes to sink them - they do not deserve to live the heartless, despicable rubbishes. They should be taken somewhere and dissected alive so that they feel pain and suffering beyond measure. These sobs should never have been allowed to grow up, they should have been smothered at birth.

It was someone who claimed that the Danes were the happiest people in the world, is this killing an expression of happiness?

There is something evil that calls to hu mans.

The word Hu is an ancient name for G-D embracing the many in the love of ONE. .

The word man is what we created with the dual urge toward good and the ego's rebellion which reverses live to evil.

Hu is to rise above evil which is live spelled backwards.

Man defies and plunges into obscenities against sacred others, against himself. against all that would spell evil forwards...into the yearning peacefulness of Hu. .
.
Hu is our natural state as co-creators with G-D.

"Man" is the break away from the ONE composed of the many which achieves good and unity for all.

In the "I am NOT that....I am NOT you" there is the adrenaline of drama . Drama in its ecstasy climaxes in death. .

Pourquoi tuer ces animaux ??? Il est grand temps que le respect de traditions meurtrières et sanguinaires soient abolies.

DISGUSTING & SICKENING, THAT THEY HAVE TO PUT THE WHALES,
THRU SOOO MUCH STRESS, FEAR & PAIN, FOLLOWED BY A LINGERING,
AGONIZING DEATH, JUST TO HAVE THEM ON THEIR PLATES !!!

I WISH ANY TRADITION, THAT CAUSES ANIMALS TO SUFFER, COULD
BE BANNED FOREVER !!!

WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE LIVING IN CIVILIZED TIMES, OR, AM I WRONG
& WE STILL HAVE SOME WAY TO GO ???

There are some traditions that should not be carried on, this horrific slaughter of these magnificent creatures is one of them. It is extremely hard to respect a tradition when it is so barbaric and cruel. We share this earth with the animals and they are not disposable and their lives matter, it isn't all about the humans. This is tragic what is done to these Pilot Whales, makes me sick what you are doing.
