Pro-religious slaughter e-petition smashes signature target
by Georgi Gyton
An e-petition calling for non-stun slaughter to be supported in the UK and the EU has smashed through its 100,000 signature target, only days after it was launched.
The Muslim Jewish Forum of Greater Manchester, together with the Jewish Representative Council of Greater Manchester and Region, decided to launch the petition, which began collecting signatures on 13 February.
It calls for a focus on improving the competence of slaughterers, rather than simply attacking non-stun slaughter methods, which it claims have been shown to minimise suffering.
