Campaign for a ban on slaughter without stunning in Scotland

There are two things you can do to help ensure that animals will not be slaughtered without stunning.


Step 1

NB - for people living in Scotland only. Please open the Scottish Government’s consultation response form, follow the instructions and go to Consultation Question 16: Do you have any other suggestions for new national rules on non-stun slaughter for religious purposes? (You can of course answer any other questions in the consultation as well.)

We suggest that you respond as follows:

I believe that non-stun slaughter for religious purposes should be banned outright in Scotland.  There is overwhelming scientific evidence that this manner of slaughter causes suffering to animals.  Whilst I respect the right to religious freedom, I do not believe this should extend to practices that inflict suffering on sentient animals.

Step 2

Please complete the form below to let us know you have responded to the consultation.
