Fees for Viewing Snakes and Positon of Beef from Abattoirs

Question:

A person take fees for allowing people to view animals at a snake park?

B-i heard that cows are brutally stunned before slaughtering?is it haraam to stun? And does the beef/meat become ‘haraam’?

Answer:

1. It is not permissible to give and take fees to view snakes and animals.

2. The brutal practice of shooting a captive bolt into the skull of cattle at abattoirs around the country render the meat haraam for consuming. No Shar’i Thabah takes place. Expert evidence abounds that this torturous method kills numerous animals out rightly. The slitting of the throat thereafter is therefore irrelevant in so far as the hurmat (prohibition) of consuming the meat of such animals is concerned.
