For a period of over 10 centuries and *still counting*, this Faroese's kind of tradition has been practised against the cost of hundreds of pilot whales. After driving the clueless whales into the shallow waters, their hunters begin to bang their blowholes with metal hooks and God forbids the rest of the massacre. Whales are hunted and slaughtered in this part of Europe to amass its meat and blubber for human consumption. *What else is new!* Sigh.
