    Thanks for the set up. :rolleye:

    It comes down to Poland's laws that require that animals in abbatoirs (slaughterhouses) be stunned first before killing while the religious customs require that the animal(s) bleed to death. The legislation seeks to prevent the slaughter of animals without first stunning them.

    I'm inclined to agree with the legislation. It's bad enough we eat animals; we can at least be humane about how we slaughter them. :dontknow:

    How is it bad enough we eat animals? We eat animals because that is exactly how the universe intended it should be.

    If we stopped eating animals, we could end up like either Howard or Robin - a gawky scarecrow with an Adam's Watermelon in his throat or a bloated cancer ridden old bag who eats like a squirrel.

    No thanks. I'll have a burger.

    Dude, I'm the first one to wrestle someone to the ground for a t-bone. I'm just saying, if we have to eat them, why should they suffer before we kill them? It's inhumane.

    I can't disagree with the decision either. The practice seems overly cruel.

    Actually it's very humane, it been the human practice since the lights came on...

    You mean it's not evolved. :coffee:

    Humans evolved because we ate meat. It required more intelligence for a puny human to figure out how to hunt larger animals than for him to forage for plants to eat. Who am I to go against thousands of years of evolution?

    This makes no sense to me. Just because it's been the practice "since the lights came on," doesn't mean it's humane.

    Explain your logic! :cmon:

    The whole thing is ridiculous. Humane treatment is the big #1 thing here in the US, unless, of course, a man in a costume and/or little hat does the cutting. A slaughterhouse can lose their license if an employee is seen hitting an animal in the face with a paddle, but religious kill still goes on. Barbaric.

    I agree with you about this. There's no need to make the animals suffer on their way out.
