Ritual slaughter is a form of slaughtering animals for the sake of religion and belief systems. It is mainly used for the Muslim and Jewish religions as they are prescribed to eat different types of meat such as Halal and Kosher foods. Both religions have really strict religious rules and have had to follows their sacred scriptures for hundreds of years. They are only allowed certain type of meat such as beef and chicken, but they are not allowed to eat any porcine species.

These animals are sacred and precious. The more we
