Faroe Islands, Sea Shepherd, and whaling, continued
The Faroe Islands (Faeroe Islands) located in the North Atlantic, roughly between
Norway and . These islands have been an autonomous Iceland . province of Denmark
The people of these picturesque islands traditionally gather their food from the sea as many island inhabitants around the world do. Part of their sea sustenance comes from hunting whales.
Recently Cabin Boy traveled to the Faroe Islands in a disguise which did not last long. He snapped photos of a whale harvesting. Sea Shepherd claimed it was gruesome and posted the photos on their website. Lately Sea Shepherd sent their newest garbage scow the Golfo Azzurro to the Faroe Island waters. Their assignement was to drop transponders on the ocean floor that would emit a sound to warn off the whales.
Well they must have dropped the wrong transponders thinking they may have emitted a whaling mating call. Over 100 whales passed over these transponders (propbaly in heat thanks to the transponders) into the fjords to be harvested and /or beached. Thank you Sea Shepherd!
To good people of the Faroe Islands not to let all this good meat go to waist, proceeded to harvest the meat to the benefit of the inhabitants of these picturesque islands. Job well done Sea Shepherd!
