Description
   Report by three professors on the humane nature of shehitah in response to the the anti-shehitah movement. They writes: "The Jewish use of the knife is a humane method of slaughter which compares favourably with any other process. The result of the cut made by the Jewish expert is to produce immediate insensibility, from which the animal does not recover. The pain, if any, is momentary, and at the worst is but slight."
