Pamela Anderson wants Faeroes to stop whale drive

COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Actress and animal rights activist Pamela Anderson says a more than four century-old pilot whales drive in the Faeroe Islands is a "barbaric, psychotic frenzy." Anderson called Friday on the semi-autonomous Danish archipelago between Scotland and Iceland to stop the non-commercial slaughter. She traveled to the islands to support a campaign by Seattle-based Sea Shepherd Conservation Society opposing the drives that date from the late 16th century Each year, islanders drive herds of pilot whales into shallow waters, where they are stabbed to death. The drives are regulated by legislation, and the meat and blubber are shared on a community basis. Islanders kill up to 1,000 whales annually out of an estimated pilot whale population of 128,000 in the northeast Atlantic, according to data kept by the Faeroe Islands.
