February 19, 2014 - a good news came from Denmark, shortly after the country came under heavy fire over its treatment of giraffes, when the zoo in Copenhagen killed a giraffe called Marius to avoid interbreeding

I still think it would be good if there was more dialogue - those who want halal and kosher meat must have some reasons for wanting it, and if they could be listened to, and in turn could listen to the other point of view, at least there would be more understanding, and possibly mutually acceptable compromises worked out, that might just mean that everyone's happy! (At least on this issue.)

Thank you Denmark for introducing this ban on extremely cruel methods of animal slaughter.
If any vile perverts within the Jewish and Muslim communities object to somewhat more civilised and humane methods of animal slaughter, they are most welcome to emigrate to some backward third world Muslim or Jewish country that allows such atrocities to take place. No decent Western European people will attempt to stop them leaving.

Right Syd, the Western world just has factory farming.
Well, Mazel tov to tDenmark for the end of one form of cruelty. Maybe next they can make bestiality, otherwise known as the rape of innocent animals illegal.

Then it's just pig rearing, sex with animals and the slaughter of the whales left to banish.

"The last kosher animal slaughter in Denmark reportedly happened more than ten years ago." So no biggie.

Good news. It's laudable that the Danish government didn't buckle under the pressure of Israel like the Dutch did.
