Strict halal and kosher slaughter require cutting the animal's throat while fully conscious. Both are exempted on religious grounds from the usual requirement to pre-stun animals.
In 2018, an estimated 94 million animals were slaughtered in the UK without pre-stunning. The RSPCA says it can cause unnecessary suffering, and the British Veterinary Association also wants it banned.
We, the undersigned, demand an end to non-stun animal slaughter in the UK, and a ban on importation of non-stun ritually slaughtered meat.
