hunters killed 100 dolphins this Friday (29) in Skálafjörður, in the Faroe Islands, a dependent territory of Denmark. Among the dead mammals, 98 were adults, one was in the mother’s womb and one was a puppyaccording to conservation group Sea Shepherd.

According to Skálafjörður police, this was the first time hunters had used a spear designed to speed up the kill time and reduce the animals’ suffering. Experts, however, reject this claim.

Some of the animals had boat propeller crop marks where the boats collided or passed over them. According to the NGO, the animals are caught in the sea and taken to the sand, where they are killed.
