The slaughter of hundreds of intelligent pilot whales is an annual event in the Faroe Islands, Denmark. The main participants are young teenage men and the event symbolises their transition to manhood - it’s basically a celebration to show they are ‘adult’ and ‘mature’.

These animals come are extremely playful and often come closer to the humans as they are intrigued. Instead they are met with a painful and unnecessary death.
