The Agony of Dying

Additional Information

Under UK law, all farmed animals have to be stunned to render them unconscious before their throats are cut. However, a special legal exemption (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1995/731/contents/made#sdiv12) which applies ONLY to Halal and Kosher slaughter, means that animals slaughtered, “by a religious method” for halal or kosher meat - are exempt. We believe that on animal cruelty grounds, that this exemption should be removed. This is not racist, it is not anti Muslim or anti Jewish. It is concern over animal welfare in the UK.
We want the UK Government to ban both un-stunned and pre-stunned slaughter in Great Britain. This practice needs to be outlawed there is no place for it in modern society.
