BELGIUM, Brussels. Belgium's Wallooon region has voted to ban kosher and halal meats by outlawing the slaughter of unstunned animals. This was reported by The Independent.
Similar legislation has been proposed by the parliament in the northern Flemish region. A ban on the slaughter of animals without stunning will come into effect in January 2019 in the Flemish region of Belgium, the De Morgen daily newspaper reports.
Countries including Denmark, Switzerland and New Zealand already prohibit unstunned slaughter.
