Was sent an e-mail this morning with horrific photos of the carnage of these poor dolphins in the Faroes. I appreciate & respect different customs and cultures, but not when it comes to needless cruelty. The e-mail asked for a signature and forward. I preferred to find a more ‘official’ petition and found this:
Please add your name if you agree and by all means pass on the link to others! This has to be stopped!

I had no hesitation in signing this petition. It leaves me deeply furious that this sort of thing is allowed to go on in the world and I urge everyone to sign in order to add volume to the voice against cruel and meaningless slaughter.
Warning! This post contains atrocious spelling, and terrible grammar. Approach with extreme edginess.
In reply to Heron77:
I agree and, I hope you don't mind MarJus, but I have forwarded it to several friends for them to sign.
The necessity of bird-watching is a really good reason for avoiding all forms of housework.
The dust will still be there tomorrow - the birds may not be!
In reply to Squirrel:
I have signed and forwarded the link to friends and family.
In reply to Brenda H:
Signed and forwarded as requested.
I have also signed, it makes me wonder about some of these countries that are supposed to be part of a civilised world, what with so many countries in the western world still capable of this type of thing and also things like illegal bird killing.it shows how much work and education still needs to be done.
In reply to NandW:
Thanks for the link - I have signed it and also forwarded it on. What an atrocious act of mindless slaughter. I can't even begin to understand the minds of these people, in fact I don't think I want to even go there. It's absolutely heart rending.
