Good news from our team in Turkey ! Another slaughterhouse, this time for sheep, will stun most of the animals they slaughter prior to cutting their throat. Eyes on Animals taught the workers how to use and maintain a stunner and officially leased out one of our stunners for a period of 1 year. We will do a follow-up check in a few months and until then they will regularly send us photos and videos. The owner of the plant was very enthusiastic about stunning and sees this as an animal-welfare improvement. Correct stunning renders the animal immediately insensitive to pain (unconscious). This is preferred to slaughter without stunning, when the animal undergoes the knife cut while fully conscious.
