  1. Is it ok when orcas slaughter pilot whales by the dozen and don’t eat them. Or when orcas kill a calf in front of its mother? Does that matter? I don’t see u morons stopping orcas from doing what they do.

  2. Y’all worry about polluted whale meat but theys a McDonald’s on every corner and I bet you eat canned food too!

  3. Every bit of this nonsense is because they are white Christian people’s, being attacked for their beliefs and traditions. They have a long history of conservation. You libs are completely off kilter. And ms. Hepatitis can shut her filthy cock sucker she knows absolutely shit about nothing. If it weren’t for hunters we wouldn’t have a legacy as human beings . God, you people need to leave these islanders alone!

  4. GOOGLE SEA SHEPHERD VIOLENCE and PAUL WATSON CRIMES and you will get a long list of crimes and violence made by that cult

  5. With a lot of pilot whales stranding themselves an dying starvation an these folks eating them eventually they will be extinct. Nice job folks. Whale starvations is due to Fukushima melt down in 2011 which is killing all life in the Pacific Ocean. All you fools should be concerned about nuc plants as well. Remove your heads from the sand.

  6. It’s not like these whales (Grind) do anything “good” for the envierment so what is wrong whit killing them for us to get food???


  8. People are acting like we don't kill highly conscious beings all the time. Oh so when it's a cow no one gives a crap but ohhhhh a whale, strictly off limits. That's just nonsense! The people do it for survival, so it's justified. In my opinion as long as it ain't a pet, and if you're not wasting any part of the animal, and the circumstances are right you can eat whatever animal you want. As long as it's respected.

  9. They should really focus their efforts on the corporations. These islanders aren’t trying to exploit whale meat is one of their limited options for food sources. They even have the receipts to show how practically all of the meat is distributed to be utilized (I highly doubt corporations can say the same).

  10. Give them more whale to eat.. they need it to keep their 140 kg body mass per person like that fat family cutting the meat

  11. Mind you're own buisness that's how they did it in the 1800 and that's how they do it in 2019 its life let them hunt !!!!!!!!

  12. Veganism is antihuman! Environmental vegans are the most hateful groups! They say anything that has cruelty should not be eaten. Well vegans you kill more animals for your grains and cause pollution pesticides that disrupt eco system. There is no meal without death!!!!! And you talk about mercury?! What about the mercury in vaccines?!! One vaccine has way more mercury then eating seafood for 100 years! Oh hypocrite!!!! You just trying to control people by talking their food supply! And at the end of the film you trying to save life?! I bet you hypocrites are for killing innocent babies ! ABORTION IS MURDER!!! And she throws occult numbers around (1300) fake new and (33) their favorite numbers! Come on you are so obvious 😂

  13. Do these people want to impose control over Amazonian exploration? Same? They have no right to complain to us, Brazilians. The Amazon is ours. Hypocrites!

  14. I would argue it not only is essential to nutrition, but even more importantly essential to masculinity…the whales are not even endangered….and its so sad to hear that mercury levels are making them unedible <— thats the real fucking story

  15. Sea shephard my arse.. get a life and proper job … leave these people alone and live their life what they have been doing for centuries…they only kill whale for food…

    You bunch of donkey go elsewhere and take on big corporations who's messing the whole planet … !!

  16. Go back to your country Pamela and take care of big dirty corporations who's destroying environment and human life .. !!

  17. Okay so from what i get from this is there trying to stop them from killing whale thats stupid just let them do what they want it there lives

  18. Any kind of meat consumption involves this nasty business in some form. Most of the time it happens in a slaughter house, away from sight. People live their lives, thinking not a thought of where it comes from. In this case it's open for all to see, and pretty much everyone on that island knows what was done to get that meat onto the plate.

    Is there a bit of sport and blood lust also involved? Perhaps. Are traditions, and history excuses? Possibly.

    Is it a problem to eat whale meat? Not in small quantities. Is it a problem to kill big groups/families of animals? Possibly.

    Can people eat less meat? Absolutely.

  19. E ainda querem criticar o presidente Bolsonaro! quando na verdade as ONGs deles silenciosamente estão furtando nossas riquezas minerais e poluindo a Amazônia.

  20. This is some sick twisted Shit!
    This is nasty and no need to kill them at all! They was so trusting of you all and you killed them!

  21. Why don't the people there bring in some deer to populate for a different food source looks like the land would support them but can still do the whaling just less because of the health issues ?

  22. Gotta love this onesided commentsection. I dont have to think twice to know every single comment is biased cancer. This kind of thing makes me want to actively hunt people, cut out the best parts and throw away the rest. With all the intelligence we have, some people have stayed at the mindset of a 3 yearold. Our race will not be long for this world, we've been here a miniscule time compared to many of the species we hunt and we are one of the biggest causes of the planets deteriation. Not before long nature is gonna strike down this cancer ass species called humans. 200k years was all we could handle, smartest animal to live on the planet kills itself because they couldnt say stop to barbaric behaviour. And before you reply, im fully aware of the circle of life, sometimes you have to kill to survive but there is a wrong and a right way to do it. Go watch some japanese whaling vids if you want some reference. What these people are doing is pretty similar.

    And something even more funny is that our new way life here, has barely existed for a millenia and we are already extinguishing our resources, we have eradicated more than 100 times or even more than the natural amount of species that die off naturally "That analysis revealed that before humans evolved, less than a single species per million went extinct annually. Applying the same statistical approach to extinction data revealed a rate of 100 to 1,000 species lost per million per year, mostly due to human-caused habitat destruction and climate change". We are garbage and we will always be garbage based on how people comment to this video and the way the people on the video reacted to opposition.

    Enjoy reading my rant and please keep ruining the enviroment so we can die faster. Go Go Nuclear war. And btw the first step in our next evolution is achieving world peace but we cant even reach that, cause we cant even respect the other humans we live with on the same planet not to mention the other creatures we share the planet with. This shit i figured out at the age of 15(Not my current age) and you guys are still like "ugh ugh eat rock" at the age of 30+.

    If you got some more insight at the wrongs of the world, good for you, now just realise you cant do shit as the monkeys around you are sealing OUR fate. And if you didnt get why i did this rant idgaf since we are all dying within the next millenia. Peace out, or i mean WAR IN. mic drop

  23. those fuckin meateaters shoiuld be sent to africa then theyll know what the FOODCRYSIS is …..MFS theyr not hunting for meat

  24. Bet those green stop idiots eat hamburgers and chickens, millions of which are killed daily. Unless your a vegan you have no say in this matter.

  25. I understand them…. there is no tree and tall grass… how can you farm there? They need to survive that’s their culture… i think they eat without rice or oatmeal

  26. Teaching children to be disrespectful towards nature, just breeds more ignorance, I simply do not understand this tradition.

  27. This is disgusting , disturbing this is a very bad representation of there country . They should be humiliated by their actions 😤

  28. What's the difference between and a slaughterhouse in Nottingham the only difference I can say is somebody has filmed this and not the slaughterhouse if you eat meat then animals have to be killed

  29. What an incredible community effort 🥰 Urban societies really lack something! These thrill seeking tourists really are interfering with people's lives, it's so sad..

  30. I think if humans worldwide still took part in hunting culture, the emotional response this sparks wouldn't be so aggressive. I've witnessed goats killed and I'm sure some ppl out there would be angry about that but as in this case its to feed the community. But the urbanization if the world has really shut that side of the human life out. Ppl eat meat and don't consider what went into that so when they see things like this they're not used to they get unnecessarily angry. Though i hope the Faroes ppl stop so they don't poison themselves


  32. Sea shepherd should worry more about genocides and issues like gaza and famine in Africa and leave the Faroese alone to continue their way of life. If anything at all, they should rather focus on ways to help the faroese hunt in a more sustainable way.

  33. Just playing Devil's Advocate, if I came to this island and decided I wanted to hunt human for food, would that be okay? I've been hunting people for many years but it is look down upon here in the United States. I'm just curious if I move to this island would I be welcome?

  34. Why do people just kill whales for food? This earth seriously needs help. I know we eat fish but seriously whales? The sea sheperds are doing a good thing.

  35. That girl with Black hair i Saw her trying to stop a grind Hunt and ran away from the police on some Stones and broke her leg and got arnested and me and my friends 😂so hard

  36. So I guess white folks eat weird shit too just not asians hahaha..damn peta must love this video…lol ..anyways if them fkin sea shepherds wanna protest they need to start bringing a cow for a whale trade..

  37. Some random mixed foreign woman comes out of nowhere to stop a small village from their food source. This is why I hate foreigners.

  38. This isn't five hundred years ago. The oceans are suffering due to pollution, overfishing and the ridiculous killing of sea mammals for food. Its difficult to believe these people would go hungry without slaughtering  hundreds of whales. People live on islands all over the world and don't resort to eating sea mammals. The starvation song and dance is total bullshit. The truth is they can't retire a custom that has long outlived it's usefulness. Anyone, including Sea Sheppard who helps these people realize the error of their ways, is contributing to the overall health of our planet. IF THE OCEANS DIE, WE ARE NEXT!

  39. If these idiots keep  eating whale meat at the rate their going  the problem will self correct. Two micrograms of methyl-mercury per gram of whale meat is enough to kill horse over time. It also causes mental retardation. Bon appétit.

  40. The methyl-mercury tainted whale blubber consumed by Faroe islanders over the centuries has obviously taken it's toll on their mental capacity.  These idiots are poisoning their own children!

  41. This sea shepherd should get out from that place. We all eat meat. We eat sea turtle 🐢 everything we eat is part of our culture. If you dont eat meat fuck off. Leave this people alone. Watta stupid group of cunt bother people culture.

  42. They can have beer from stores but for food they have to kill harmless innocent sea mammals. What a bullshit. And they call themselves the civilized people of first world countries.

  43. I hope that guy can fulfill his dream of “dying for a tuna” he’s a little late tho killed 67 of them out of coos bay Oregon last week and boy they taste good

  44. The Faroese hunting whales or dolphins is not the problem. As long as they make full use of their kill(s) and don't let the resource go to waste (which it seems they do). I agree with others who say it is not for us to judge. My only issue, is this: Is there a way to kill the animals faster so they don't suffer for minutes or hours? Such as shooting them or electrocuting them, or something other than [eventually] stabbing and slicing them (where they are already in terror for up to a half hour or more? …before they die). Environmentalism is a double edged sword.

    I believe groups like "Sea Shepherd" do good work. But they also probably do bad work (radical environmentalism). There has to be balance. And that "President" lady of the Sea Shepherds (France), had seemingly changed her thought process a little by this experience and talking with the people. But like most leftists (and I will make that assumption), she is ignorant and brainwashed (like the vast majority of us), with the Global Warming and "AGW" fallacy and criminal scam.

    There is no more "organic farming/harvesting" than the way the Faroese do it. They have to survive, and they have to be able to provide for themselves. They have to be able to harvest their natural resources. So I can understand the old man being pissed off, and cursing at her. And I can understand Denmark and the EU leaving them alone, to their own way of life. I can also understand their culture and tradition (which we are loosing in the Western European/Caucasian world (this is intentional and not by accident as well). That is a harsh environment. And they have to be allowed to provide for themselves.

    The only issue again, is reducing the suffering of the animals being slaughtered. That should be something that humans aspire to accomplish in perpetuity, always improving their methods and "sustainability" using technology/technological advances. It is difficult to watch the animals being essentially suffocated and dragged ashore, struggling. But until there is a better way formulated which the Faroese can agree to/get accustomed to, maybe there is no "better way".

    I think it's a very interesting and relevant comparison, to compared them to the Japanese, – a culture and nation that also still hunts and eats whales, dolphins, sharks and everything from the bounty of the Sea; And is also being persecuted by environmental or animal rights groups and interfered with. It's also worth noting that the Japanese (along with the Faroe Islanders also probably), are one of the healthiest populations in the world. But as they become more industrialized and urbanized, their health deteriorates somewhat.

    We in America and Western cultures are increasingly unhealthy from massive corporate factory farms and slaughterhouses, bacteria, diseases, chemicals, pesticides, GMOs, antibiotics, preservatives, vaccines, highly processed and refined foods, soils where the nutrients are depleted, monoculture, etc. And we are not adapting. All these things, and many other different things are destroying America and our European heritage and culture (which also used to be heavily dependant upon seafood and the oceans).
