Disturbing video shows more than 1,400 dolphins killed in a single day off the coast of the Faeroe Islands, a North Atlantic archipelago that sits between Iceland and Norway. The slaughter of Atlantic white-sided dolphins, part of the century-old traditional Grindadrap hunt, is the largest single hunt of cetaceans ever recorded and is sparking protests from environmental groups who say the hunt is cruel.
