Closed petition Ban non-stun slaughter in the UK

Non-stun slaughter causes unnecessary pain and suffering to animals. Protection of animals at the time of killing must take precedence over religious rites and beliefs. All animals should be effectively stunned before slaughter. No exceptions

More details

The UK government has repeatedly stated it would prefer to see all animals stunned before slaughter, but has taken no action to address this critical welfare issue that affects millions of animals every year. The RSPCA and British Veterinary Association have said animals slaughtered without pre-stunning face unnecessary pain and suffering.
