Veterinarians and animal welfare campaigners have campaigned for animals to be stunned before killing for many years. This includes meat classified as ‘Halal’
The rules of the halal meat are based on Islamic law. This describes that the animal must be healthy and alive at the time of slaughter and that the blood must be drained out.
Many people who use the Halal method believe that the animal is killed by the stun tool, especially small animals and poultry. This would go against their law, as the animal needs to be alive during slaughter.
Accles & Shelvoke has developed a range of stun tool for halal slaughter that stun animals without killing them. This ensures that the laws of halal slaughter are abided by.
The The Accles & Shelvoke CASH Concussion range of stun tools deliver a percussive force to the head of the animal using a non-penetrative bolt. This ensures that the animal remains alive.
The stun tools are available with a variety of different cartridges, all suitable for different sized animals.
The method is compliant with the requirements of Islamic law, whilst being still being a compassionate way to stun the animal.
