Sea Shepherd volunteers on the ground in the Faroe Islands have captured horrific scenes of the slaughter of a pod of pilot whales which took place at Hvannasund yesterday.
For the second time this season, the waters of the Faroe Islands are red with the blood of slaughtered pilot whales.
Faroese police have threatened tourists visiting the island archipelago with possible arrest and prosecution if they do not report sightings of migrating whales and dolphins to local authorities.
The violent assault comes just ten days after Sea Shepherd reported to Costa Rican authorities receiving warning of an impending attack by poachers
