Summary: 

MORE animals than ever before are dying in agony because of halal meat practices which means they are not stunned before their throats are slit, it has emerged. Traditionally, cows, sheep and chickens are rendered unconscious before being slaughtered to minimise their suffering. However, researchers at the University of Bristol found that some Muslim abattoirs are ignoring the EU regulations to stun animals as they do not believe it is “halal” which requires animals to bleed out while alive.
