WACPAW (West African Centre for the Protection of Animal Welfare) heard about our animal-welfare training courses in Turkey and asked Eyes on Animals if we could also come to Ghana to give a workshop to their slaughter men, veterinarians and agricultural students. We financed a team, including humane slaughter expert Dr. Awal Fuseini, and today gave a one-day course in Tamale, Ghana. In Tamale there is a large cattle and sheep market as well as a municipal slaughterhouse. There were roughly 60 participants, many of which work at the market and slaughterhouse. There was lots of discussion and brainstorming together. Tamale is a mainly a Muslim-populated city in Ghana. Dr. Fuseini explained how stunning works, and the benefits of stunning during Halal slaughter were debated. The day was a success and we hope to see the new information gathered put into practice in the near future at the market and slaughterhouse in this city.
