Rites of passage

 

Each year the sea around Feroe Island, Denmark is stained red, not because of the effects of the climate or through a Biblical plague but because of the cruelty of supposedly human beings.

Hundreds of the famous Calderon dolphins are slaughtered by young teens in a celebration to demonstrate their maturity and passage into adulthood. In this celebration those not actively participating in the slaughter are watching.

They don’t die instantly; they are cut 1, 2 or 3 times with thick hooks. With each cut the dolphins produce a grim cry like that of a new born child. 

Take care of the world, it is your home!
