Percussive stunning

Percussive stunning

With percussive stunning, a device which hits the animal on the head, with or without penetration, is employed. Such devices, such as the captive bolt pistol, can be either pneumatic or powder-actuated. Percussive stunning produce immediate unconsciousness through brain trauma. With cattle, goats, sheep, and horses a penetrating stunner is typically used since it destroys the cerebrum.
