Emma B BS: Halal Meat on sale in the UK (98* d) RE: BS: Halal Meat on sale in the UK 04 Oct 10

"If you had to choose between being ``stunned`` with an electric powered bolt gun putting a three inch deep hole in your forehead before having your throat slit or just having your throat slit, what would you opt for?"

There has been some discussion about scientific evidence of both forms of slaughter although the RSPCA acknowledges that the majority (at least 90%) of Halal slaughtered animals are stunned in the UK prior to slaughter.

This is a link to a website that also claims some experimental comparisons between different forms of slaughter - I contribute it for information only - I can neither confirm or dispute the results.

My concern is that, given as one poster pointed out, this method of slaughter has been carried out legally by both Jewish and Muslim communities in the UK for many years it is 'suspect' why a specificaly anti Halal/Muslim campaign has currently been generated by the press and extreme right wing organizations in the UK and reproduced here - if there is an animal welfare issue at stake it has been around for a long time without previous commebt!!
