Petition Ban non-stun slaughter in the UK.
Under UK law, all farmed animals have to be stunned to render them unconscious before their throats are cut. However halal or kosher meat are exempt. We believe that on animal cruelty grounds, that this exemption should be removed.
These animals suffer prolonged and cruel deaths, after their throat is cut they are then hoisted up on hooks whilst still fully conscious until they bleed to death. Large animals can take up to 10 minutes to die.
