Her Child Was Torn From Her Body. It's Almost Impossible To View These Images
Some things happen in this world that seem to pull the rug from under our feet. Whether it is because they are unjust and heartless. Or unnecessary and pointless. Or simply inhuman and shameful. 

Warning: Following photos are quite graphic, but it helps raise awareness around an ongoing issue. 
Birita_Blahamar  THE HYPOCRISY AND LIES OF SEA SHEPHERD It is just more comfortable for some people buying the meat in the store all nicely packed in plastic with no visual blood anywhere. That way they can abstract from the killing of the animal and feel good about themselves when they eat a steak and probably they can convince themselves that no animal was harmed for their meal, but for us who live closer to nature and actually know where our meat comes from, it is a fact of life that an animal has to die for us to get a meal. You don´t see the slaughter and the blood of a cow, a chicken or a pig, but that does not mean, that it´s not there. It´s just nicely hidden from the public eye, so that people can feel good about themselves and abstract from visualizing the blood. You don´t see how the animal is treated prior to the killing or what kind of life it had prior to the killing. Our Grindadráp takes place in open nature and we have nothing to hide. The pilot whales live free in the ocean their whole lives until the killing, which is done as fast and humane as possible, but of course the ocean turns red of the blood, just like a glass of water would if i got a papercut and held my finger over the water. This is natural and does not make the killling any worse than any other killing of animals for consumption. The problem is that people that have no connection to nature have lulled themselves to sleep all cuddled up in the belief that they can eat and survive without any animals dying or at least they don´t have to worry about how their KFC chickenwings were killed because they can abstract from that side of the story. I mean, didn´t their meal come all nicely packed in a bucket ? The double cheese burger has no connection to a cow, it just popped out of McDonalds wrapped in paper ! Long live hypocrisy....
Birita_Blahamar  Sea Shepherd - educate yourselves ! A lot of SS members claim that the poor faroese children must get affected by the Grindadráp in a negative and harmful way so that they become violent and scarred for life, but in fact faroese children are well balanced and in harmony with nature. Surely the Grindadráp is a scene of death and blood but our children understand why animals are killed. We also have thousands of sheep on the islands and a great number are killed every year for consumption. This is something that most of the children are involved in as their families own the sheep and this is a natural part of life when you are living close to nature and kill animals for consumption only. I am glad that my children know where their food comes from and proud that they do not think that meat only is something well packed in plastic in the store and have no knowledge of it´s origin. Our heritage is that of the fishermen and farmers and we take great pride in only killing for consumption. Every part of the sheep is used, sweaters are knitted from the wool and so on. The whale meat is distributed free amongst the people of our islands and often with great consideration of the elderly, for whom it is of great value. Faroese whaling has never been commercial and never will be. After the Grindadráp the bones and other remains are taken care of and there have never been bones from whales lying around our beaches. About the mercury pollution of the whale meat, there is only one thing to say : Stop polluting our oceans, please !

We've seen THIS scam before. A guy lays down in front of traffic in an attempt to be hit, non-fatally, with the goal of winning some settlement on behalf of the driver's insurance. Why's this one different? Well, she didn't see him!

Share this one with your friends. They'll be as shocked as you are.
