Slaughtering

The Council provides an Abattoir at Jalan Sungai for the slaughtering of animals, i.e. Pigs at Section 'A' and Cows as well as Goats/Sheep at Section 'B'. Besides that, the Council also issues slaughter permits (Special Licence) and monitors slaughtering operations in the City Abattoir.

In terms of enforcement, the Council supervises and inspects meat in Rural Slaughter Houses, controls the entry of livestock and illegal meat from places outside the Council area and inspects cold rooms in Council areas for the purpose of Meat Importation.

In addition to this, the Council's Abattoir also serves as a training centre for Meat Inspectors, Veterinary Assistants, Health Inspectors and Cooperative Bodies as well as for trainees from foreign countries.
