According to the animal rights organization Gaia the number the sheep slaughtered illegally at home during Eid ul-Adha in the Brussels region did not decrease this year. The same number of carcasses were picked up this year as last year.
According ot Gaia these carcasses come from illegal home-slaughter. "People are clearly not prevent these forbidden practices since these regulations are made only half-heartingly" says Michel Vandenbosch, Gaia president.
"So the transport of sheep in passenger cars is always permitted and the flesh of ritual slaughter is not subjected to inspection. The public prosecutions rarely if ever sue, thereby the courts and gov't give the impression that slaughter can be done at home without punishment.
