Blog: Religious slaughter methods under fire
Catherine Sleep | 10 June 2003
As a carnivore, I tread carefully before pronouncing on cruelty to animals. By eating meat I am accepting, or some would argue promoting, a degree of animal cruelty.

Many other farming practices can also be viewed as unnecessarily cruel, such as battery farming.
