Should the Slaughter of Grouse be allowed to continue?

Perversely should grouse shooting stop the result would have a devastating effect on the species.
The carefully balanced management of the Moors is not inexpensive and it is carried out to sustain the shooting 'industry'. Without this investment the loss to the rural economy would be crippling.

I suspect this has been prompted by some random shots of a wounded bird flapping about taken by some liberal hand wringer:

If these people would like to concentrate their efforts on the prevention of cruelty to animals then maybe they should turn their attention to the Halal method of dispatching cows, sheep and goats... No? I thought not.

The trouble with most preservationist is that they fail to realise that a great deal of wildlife depends on hunting. It is rather interesting that the decline in songbirds, for example, is blamed on just about everything except the animal life that predates on these birds. Just watch the blame game develop as the 'cute' puffin numbers plummet with the rather rapid expansion of the great skua (bonxie) Southwards.

Hung up, throats slit with no stunning - animal bled out.
Before a Fatwah wings it's way over to Bigeye Towers: although this method certainly is used in the UK there are Halal butchers that do stun first.

10 years ago maybe, nearly all, if not all licensed slaughter houses nowadays stun 1st. Do keep up if you wish to stay outraged.

If they stun...........it's not Halal,end off!

According to the Koran/Sharia Law.......the animal must be conscious when its throat is cut,otherwise it isn't Halal. ;-)

It is, a stunned animal WILL make a full recovery after about 10/15 minutes and is therefore a perfectly healthy animal and Kosher/Halal.

Absolute shite,if you want I`ll lend you one and you can prove me wrong by shooting yourself with it.

If the animal is still breathing it's halal. Hence rich Arabs on a deer stalking spree will prefer to injure the deer with the rifle, then kill it with a knife once the guiide has tracked it down. The last breath thing could have been used to ensure the meat is fresh enough to eat.

I thought it was that the animal must just be alive when its throat is cut.
