Killing Fowls. [Newspaper Article] — Kyabram Union — 18 November 1887

Killtan lewis. There is a right way and a wrong one of killinga fowl The latter, I (correspondent) feaz, many adopt. I well remember the first attempt that I made. It was to be done by breakfng the neck, which seemed an easy enough bueiness on paper. The struggles of the poor fowl, prolo?Red by my own nervousnese, made me resolve never to do it again. A new method I saw discribed in the ' Live Stock Journal " three or four years ago and this mtcceeds so well. that I have broken my vow. This is to tie no the birds by the lea, using soft cord for the purpoese, "o that it will be jue level with the operator's breast. The bird is first stunned by a blow on the head, and then the windpipe Is osevered with a sharp knife. The blood flows freely, and the action of the wings, left loose for the purpose, help in that direction, In a very short time museolar action ceases. I have been Maeured by those who ought to know that this is the most bhumane method of killing fowls.
