New animal slaughter law comes into effect
A new law banning the slaughter of animals that have not been stunned, which came into effect today, has been met with resistance by several Muslim and Jewish religious groups.
The new law was introduced at the behest of the agriculture and food minister, Dan Jørgensen (S). "As far as I am aware, nobody has practiced this kind of slaughtering without stunning in Denmark in many years," he told the Ritzau news agency.
"But we make the change anyway because some people have been demanding it and I want to be completely sure that it won't happen in Denmark."
