I don't normally join in these pro/anti slaughter threads, but I am curious about some facts here.
I am in Canada now, but was in the UK before. The legal method of slaughter of all animals in all abbattoirs in the UK is stunning with electric bolts to the head, followed by a metal bolt to the brain. I had assumed, possibly naively that it was the same here.
Is it really the case that high volume slaughter houses use bolt guns without stunning first? That seems highly inefficient, as well as resulting in an unnecessarily high risk of cruelty.
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
