  •   kelseykoonce Oh how I wish we lived in a world like that. Where we didn't have to worry about kidnappings, and pedophiles. Where people weren't murdered every day and everyone was kind to one another. A place were you could trust your neighbor. 7d
  •   emihernando Some people could think that leave the kid alone in that way is rare (maybe i think that too). But after all, the image represents a safe society, when you can live in peace, with social and economic security. For us (i mean Argentinian people) is just a dream. I hope one day we can live like that... i get sad knowing that we leave a fallin out world to our future childrens. 6d

edouphoto Scientists use a crane to lift the head of a northern bottlenose whale during a dissection in a lab. Last week, five bottlenose whales beached themselves on shore in the southernmost island of #suðuroy. Under Faroese law, if there is no way to return them to the ocean, they are allowed to be killed. The meat was distributed equally amongst the residents of the island for food, and remaining parts we're brought to scientists for research. #faroeislands 2w

edouphoto faroese men cut up pilot whales which were killed during a #grindadráp (whale hunt) in #sandur #faroeislands. the meat is evenly divided between those who live on the island. for centuries the faroese have hunted pilot whales for food, and it has become a source of pride and identity. international critics argue the hunt is barbaric and no longer necessary for survival. the faroese passionately defend the hunt, citing little difference between the grind and a slaughterhouse in america. the faroese note that pilot whales are not endangered, and on average only 1000-1500 pilot whales are killed annually out of a total population of 800,000. however, conservation groups like sea shepherd dispute this figure. despite the controversy, the faroese proudly stand by their enduring tradition. 2w
  •   ree00000000000000 I just thought the world become too similar anywhere. It's like farm and we eat only things from the farm. People live in their environment and accept it and creat their own culture. I think faroese men should do it also for their humanity. 2w
  •   ree00000000000000 And I don't want to imagine today's farm which is merciless so I lose appetite for meat. Hopeless vegetarian. 2w
  •   amidst @ree_10000000000000 I respect the point you bring up. The world doesn't have to be similar everywhere. We can respect other cultural practices and try to relate. We can look at the other perspectives of the world and are how they may benefit our own perspective. Killing is killing. No matter what is being killed. If we realize that we are animals also, then the practice of killing becomes murder. Killing with respect and proper intention and awareness of balance is acceptable (my opinion) but without these things, we are just savages. No more civilized than our ancient ancestors in some ways. 2w
  •   miriamjanus @amidst I like you and your balanced way of thinking and arguing. Thank you for that! 2w
  •   ree00000000000000 @amidst Thanks so much. Slaughter is cruel but I think we couldn't insist our opinion to whom live in different environment. It's their struggle and dignity. 2w

  •   ally_oz So driving a pod of whales onto a beach to be slaughtered in large numbers so you can eat the meat and blubber which you all know and is scientifically to contain HIGH levels of mercury and other poisonous substances which aren't suitable for human consumption in any quantity. Woman and young girls are advised NOT to consume if they want to have children or while pregnant? seems ridiculous. Trying to hold onto an out of date tradition/culture which doesn't belong in this day and age. Get a grip and get with the times. Sustainable farming and fishing. What you do isn't sustainable, or necessary. Where's the conservation effort? There isn't one. Take take take. Killing pregnant whales and their calfs? Barbaric. The whole world pity's you. #bethechange and stop and think. Please. 2w
  •   amidst @ally_oz it's not much different than slaughtering other animals, and the health issues associated with the whales are not much unlike the issues with other methods of producing meat. If you are telling anyone else to get a grip, it might be good to get yourself a grip. Apparently you think your perspective is the only right way to think, but I'm sure if you spoke to enough people from different walks of life you would start to question your views more and realize that there isn't a universally "right" or "wrong" way to do most things in life :) indeed, maybe you should #bethechange and give a new perspective a try. 2w

  •   savnicholas Barbaric. 2w
  •   emkile Unless they are endangered, killed for sport, or brutally I see no difference between that and eating other animals. 2w
  •   rasputinslamb They have high levels of mercury and should not be eaten. More importantly, they die painful deaths. These are highly intelligent, social animals and should be left alone. Killing any animal for food is wrong. They are not our food. SS volunteers have heard their screams and can confirm that the deaths are not instant. #itsnotfooditsviolence 2w
