Austria: illegal “Halal” slaughter documented in video

The following video is considered a real contemporary document, as well as an undeniable confirmation that the legislature in Austria is on a totally wrong track with its current interpretation and must correct the direction IMMEDIATELY !!!

What ended up in our mailbox is incredible video evidence of a highly illegal act.
When looking at the scenes recorded on tape, we were actually close to tears – and do not even know where to start listing the illegal, highly dramatic misconduct on the part of the farm owner!

The recordings show a slaughter in the very same factory where, as part of our campaign for the Islamic Festival of Sacrifice, the slaughterhouse owner, covered in blood from head to toe, attacked us on the street with wide eyes, completely out of control; only the intervene of those present to hold back the angry man prevented a total escalation.
But what we experienced showed only too clearly which aggressive behavior is concentrated there;

But what exactly is going on in the various sequences?
You can see the butcher fixing a cattle in a shaft box.

Then he makes the throat cut.
Furthermore, a man appears (most likely the slaughterhouse owner) who apparently wants to give the captive bolt anesthetic himself; which apparently leads to a brief controversy with the man who carried out the slaughter (video 1).

Because we assume, the good man would like to do it himself, even if he may not have permission to do so!
And the ‘real’ “Halal” butcher wants to prevent that!
In any case, the owner stops the advance, takes the stunning device, and finally fires the shot himself.
With blood-smeared hands.
Which shouldn’t be either, because the risk of slipping is too great!

In the meantime, almost exactly half an excruciating minute has passed. In the second video, it takes just as long for the anesthesia to be set.
The law says, however, ‘the anesthetic must be performed immediately after the throat cut’ … If you manage to look at the cattle, you can clearly see how the dying animal moves its eyes open and closed in panic in agony.
A sure sign of the greatest pain and bitterest suffering.

The next urgent question: where is the vet who must ALWAYS be present during slaughter without exception?
One cannot be seen for miles!
At least as explosive: the video was obviously recorded in May.
As far as we know, said the company has a permit for slaughtering, but only and without exception during the five days of sacrifice!

But they didn’t take place until the end of July / beginning of August, more than 2 months after the film was made.

So everything outside of this date happens in complete illegality, without any question.
The fact is that the number of unreported cases of illegal slaughter, which has once again been clearly proven, is enormous. Certainly, one that by far exceeds any estimate, no matter how careful …

Incidentally, anonymous sources now speak of the weekly slaughter at the said court.
The videos also clearly show that people without any protective clothing, in plain civilian clothing, take part in the slaughter. Also a clear violation of the guidelines

So what now? there is only one answer, which is so clear anyway: Prohibit shafts – now !!!

We filed a complaint and sent the video material to the public prosecutor!

For information: Speaking of “Halal” slaughter prohibition:
In countries such as Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Australia (excluding 4 slaughterhouses), and New Zealand (excluding poultry), “halal” slaughtering is prohibited.

In Sweden, “farm animals” must be stunned at slaughter when the blood is flowing.
This regulation does not apply to emergency slaughter as a result of an accident or illness of the animal. Traditional slaughtering without stunning is prohibited.

In Flanders (Belgium), slaughter without stunning has been banned since January 1, 2019, and in Wallonia (Belgium) since September 1, 2019.
It is still allowed in France, Spain, Great Britain, Ireland, and the Brussels Capital Region (Belgium).

Simultaneous stunning is required in Finland.
In Estonia, Latvia, Greece, and Slovakia, post-cut stunning is required as in Austria.
In Slovenia, ritual slaughter is prohibited at all.
In Poland, slaughter without stunning was banned for a short time between January 2013 and December 2014.
In the Netherlands, “Halal” slaughtering was no longer allowed for a short time since August 2016. It may only be slaughtered with an exception (here it must be scientifically proven that no pain is inflicted on the animal; note: which amounts to a complete ban).

In 1892/93, animal welfare organizations promoted a popular initiative in Switzerland to “ban slaughter without prior stunning”. On August 20, 1893, there was a vote. 49.18% of the electorate voted;

60.1% of them voted for the ban. Since then, the “Halal” slaughter of mammals has been banned in Switzerland, but it is still allowed for poultry.



And I mean… slaughter without stunning is barbaric animal cruelty!  is not a service to God.

At the same time, we condemn without prejudice the annually thousands of “false stunning” in German slaughterhouses.

Despite decades of protests from animal rights activists and responsible citizens, these crimes continue to be practiced, even though they are unlawful under the law.
We also mistakenly anesthetize in large numbers in the slaughterhouse, and although it is not done consciously or deliberately, it has the same painful consequences as “Halal”.

We also illegally slaughter pregnant, down, injured cows, and pigs.
But we cannot forgive a crime because crimes happen everywhere.

And precisely because we have already been beaten enough by illegally established animal cruelty (illegal pig caste, animal experiments, etc.) – do we also have to allow other horrific, life-despising animal cruelty practices such as “halal”?

It is depressing, annoying, simply terrifying with what false “tolerance” or indifference this society still allows to take place today, in the 21st century, such as archaic tortures.
