KARACHI : Pakistani authorities on Monday denied a report that thousands of Australian sheep culled over disease fears were killed improperly, insisting they were slaughtered in accordance with Islamic practice. A senior official insisted
Roshan Shaikh, Karachi's top administrative official, said reports of the animals' mistreatment were untrue.
"We have slaughtered the sheep in Islamic manner and duly buried them deep in trenches ensuring that they could not cause danger to human population or animals," he said.
"There was just a single sheep, the throat of which was not properly cut, but that was a human error and not deliberate,” he added
