Local residents catch whales to slaughter them near the town of Hvalvik, May 23, 2009. More than 180 pilot whales (Globicephala melaena) were killed in the small town of Hvalvik during the traditional whale killing In Faroe Islands. Residents of the Faroe Islands, an autonomous province of Denmark, slaughter and eat pilot whales every year. The Faroese are descendents of Vikings, and pilot whales have been a central part of their diet for more than 1,000 years. They crowd the animals into a bay and kill them. The Faroese aren?t involved in commercial whaling, they don't sell the meat, instead it is divided evenly to the local community. Picture taken May 23, 2009.
