Mobile abattoirs for Eid Al Adha in Dubai to avoid crowds

To meet the rush and prevent overcrowding during the upcoming Eid Al Adha, the Dubai Municipality has made arrangements for mobile abattoirs to be positioned at different locations in Dubai.

DUBAI: The Dubai Municipality has set up mobile abattoirs to meet the demand of sacrificing animals during the upcoming Eid Al Adha. The civic body's Public Health Services Department has also set up temporary abattoirs in Al Quoz, Al Ghusais and Al Khawaneej. There are already some existing abattoirs in Hatta, Al Ghusais and Al Lusaily.

The mobile abattoirs will help reduce crowding, according to officials. About 800 to 1,000 animals can be slaughtered at a unit each day. The municipality charges Dh15 for sacrificing goats or sheep, Dh30 to Dh35 for cows and Dh60 to Dh65 for sacrificing camels, depending on weight. About 15,000 sacrifices are usually done at the abattoirs in Dubai during Eid Al Adha.

All abattoirs will open on the first day of Eid Al Adha after prayer time until 4 pm. They open from 7.30 am to 4 pm on the second, third and fourth days of Eid. The Dubai Municipality has distributed abattoirs in several parts of Dubai.

The mobile abattoirs will have two veterinarians, eight butchers and five workers assisting. Proper sterilisation of utensils will be done. The vets will check the animal to ensure it is healthy. The municipality has advised people to avoid door-to-door butchers to keep hygiene.

According to mobile abattoir manufacturers, the mobile slaughter unit is perfect for the slaughter of animals in remote parts of any country. By bringing the abattoir to the animals instead of transporting the animals to the abattoir it has reduced the stress levels, transport deaths and weight loss of the animals.
