WARSAW, Poland - The Polish parliament apparently is set to amend the law on animal protection to allow ritual slaughter without stunning.

"We have prepared a draft amendment to the law on the protection of animals," Agriculture Minister Stanislaw Kalemba was quoted as saying by the Polish Press Agency.

The parliament may vote on the proposal in January.

A Polish court ruled in late November that a 2004 government directive enshrining ritual slaughter was unconstitutional.
