Abstract or Summary
  • There are a number of welfare issues relating to religious slaughter and the handling of animals both before slaughter and at point of slaughter. Most notably perceived pain and distress by cattle during the neck cut and the duration of sensibility in the period after slaughter prior to loss of brain function are often examined within religious slaughter methods. This paper will examine two different methods of the slaughter of cattle: penetrating captive bolt versus traditional halal slaughter. The two methods at point of slaughter will first be illustrated, and then pre-slaughter methods relating to the restraint of the animal prior to slaughter will be compared and contrasted. Ultimately, these comparisons will answer the question: is commercial captive bolt stunning more humane than the practice of halal style slaughter? Several physiological indicators such as bleed-out rate, sentience at point of slaughter, and time to collapse among others will be examined and compared between the two methods.
