Cruel Kosher Slaughter Practice

Did you know this?

American rabbis and animal rights groups oppose the practice known as "shackle and hoist," in which a cow is strung up by a hind leg and then dropped on the ground before its throat is slit.

The practice is common among kosher meat producers because Israel's Chief Rabbinate requires cows to be upside down when they are slaughtered.
