Sample text

It is mentioned that the suffering may have taken as much as an hour, or such a long time that the butcher was able to finish a meal while waiting for the 32 Taija Kaarlenkaski animal to die. The respondents of the questionnaire distanced themselves from such slaughtering practices by denouncing them as cruelty to animals and bewailing the barbarism of the local people (see also Dirke 2000: 205–7). Although it has been argued that stunning large bovines before bleeding has been a long-standing and widespread practice (Vialles 1994: 17; Higgin, Evans, and Miele 2011: 177), this seems not to have been the case in early modern rural Finland (see also Nieminen 2001: 56).

In some texts, the agony of the animal is described quite graphically and also emotionally. The blood runs slowly for about ¼ an hour, the animal groans in agony, makes useless efforts to get away, straightens its legs, dies. When there are no signs of life anymore the slaughterer touches the eye of the animal with his finger or with the point of the knife to test if there is still sensation (SKS KRA. Juho Isopere E 43. 1893. Eurajoki, south-western Finland). The accounts of the practices of slaughtering tend to be rather laconic, but in the descriptions of dying animals emotional expressions are often used to depict the struggle.

Ruusunen, Nikolaus E 48. 1904. Different municipalities in Satakunta). The case of slaughtering shows that the emotional reactions towards animals were controlled by traditional beliefs in some areas of animal husbandry. The fact that it was forbidden to feel sorry for the animal while slaughtering may be explained by applying the idea of Laura Stark and seeing certain emotions as agencies or forces. According to her interpretation of the narratives on magic rites, the consequences of negative emotions were not believed to be always controllable by the persons involved.
