as a meat eater, my opinion on this can't be taken seriously. Still, it's pretty fucked.
preclude you having an opinion on halal slaughter?
but i like meat :(
In theory I guess they could but that's like giving a local aneasthetic to someone who's going to get shot in the brain. In the case of halal though, yeah.
they claim death is instant but the British Veterinary Association disagrees.
will normally prevent a continuous blood supply to the brain, depriving it of oxygen and leaving you brain dead very quickly. The rest of the body might take some time to die, but this pain will not be felt if the brain is dead. I don't see how this is cruel. Plus it what we've been doing for hundreds and thousands of years - it's not like this method or any other method of slaughtering an animal is to prolong the suffering of an animal. Also surely kosher meat is slaughtered in a very similar way.
is too much if it's more than what is necessary? Not to be on a high horse or anything cos you know, I loves ma meat.
Does meat taste better if animals are killed with less pain? That's an honest question. Otherwise it's surely just what has to happen for you to eat something you really like. Getting all squeamish about it seems a little disingenuous.
