My FIL kills his own sheep on the farm and he knocks them on the head, then ties them up upside down then cuts their neck so the blood drains WHILST the animal is still alive. Occ they come to a bit whilst that happens.
That was the practice he was taught as blood left in meat taints it and therefore it spoils quicker. Now he has been doing this for years and when I told him that this practice was almost halal he got all upset.
In my experience here and OS this way of killing animals is the norm.

The cut is across the carotid and jugular with the blood draining quickly. It's pretty quick.

DH used to work in an abattoir whose trade was 90% overseas market. The iman cut all the cattle and goats throats and let them bleed out. I think the claims Halal funds terrorism is stupid, my issue is more if the animals suffer. I was vegetarian for 10 years so it worries me. But then look at our appalling record on how we keep our chickens

This is from the Department of Halal Certification "The animal must be alive at the time of slaughter. No electric shock, bullet or any other means should be used before slaughtering. Using any such method may lead to the death of the animal before it is cut. Islam prohibits Muslims from eating any meat coming from an animal that is dead before slaughter. Muslims are also advised to avoid eating anything doubtful".

And again I ask.... do the Halal Certified companies pay for this certification or is the cost passed on to the consumer?

I agree that there would be instances where companies would pass the cost on of the halal certification - the question is how much does that constitute in the price? As an anti-theist I object to financial supporting religions so I appreciate your point. I don't shop at Gloria Jeans nor by Sanitarium products. I'm guessing there's plenty more products I should stop buying but it's not my life's focus (not suggesting it's yours either).

I do agree that all murder of animals is inhumane but I think there is clearly a method far more inhumane than the other.
