EU countries condemn hunt of Atlantic white-sided dolphins in Faroe Islands

Member countries of the European Union (EU) have issued a strongly-worded statement to the International Whaling Commission, criticising the horrific killing of Atlantic white-sided dolphins last September in the Faroe Islands.

The event, in which over 1,400 dolphins were killed, received condemnation from both within the Faroe Islands and across the globe.

The Faroese Government has since been reviewing procedures concerning the hunt and deciding what measures should be put in place for the future. The EU statement urges that there is a proper investigation into the event and calls for the killing of Atlantic white-sided dolphins "to be severely restricted or banned in the near future."
