If you care about welfare at slaughter, and you should if you consider yourself a true stalker, next time you dine out, order a take away or attend a funcion, ask whether the meat you are about to eat was produced according to the best possible welfare standards. If it is not, you will unwittingly lend support to an outmoded, inhumane method of slaughter that has no place in a modern, rational and compassionate society.
