  1. Watched a cow slaughter… not feeling so well.
    Like the words… don’t look at your food when they’re still alive.

    Not questioning religious rules, but in the past they could behead criminals instead of slicing their throat and let them bleed to dead don’t they?

    1. Actually beheading was never part of Islamic law. And when it came to the animal sacrifice in Eid, we slaughter sheep not cows and we don’t let them bleed to death perse. We slit the throat, cutting the jugular veins and carotid arteries of both sides together with the trachea and esophagus but leaving the spinal cord intact. The knife has to be extremely sharp as to not make the animal feel any pain. Then we leave the blood to flow out since the heart is still pumping so that there isn’t any blood retention in the meat. At this point, the animal’s brain isn’t recording any sensual messages from the animal’s body. Therefore, if it’s done right, the animal shouldn’t feel pain at all. It might look like the animal is in pain from the body convulsion you see, but actually it’s just normal reflex reaction.

        1. Apparently cutting the spinal cord would disrupt the blood flow and that’s bad since this would keep the blood in the meat, which is not allowed for health and religious reasons.
