Animals are ‘dying in agony’ for halal meat: Muslim ‘ignorance’ over pre-slaughter stunning is causing needless pain say experts

Animals are dying in unnecessary agony because of a lack of understanding over how stunning stops them feeling pain when their throats are cut, research shows.

In conventional slaughterhouses, cows, sheep and chicken are stunned, usually with an electric shock, to ensure they are unconscious before their throats are cut.

This minimises suffering but in a number of Muslim abattoirs the animals are not stunned over fears it is not permissible, or ‘halal’.
