Well, during my time in Turkey a few decades ago, they slaughter lamb at a holiday. Ramadan, Attaturk b-day, ect... There is a huge barrel chested guy that comes around the village to do the slaughtering. To remove the hide he makes a slit around above a hoof, inserts a tube there and blows! No air compressor involved just his lungs. It was amazing. Especially since the "men" there in the village were on the slight build scale, few worked at physical labor. This guy had some serious lungs on him. Took him about 1/2 hour to do one animal.
The fellow that owned the deer lease we went to the last few years, does this with deer. He cuts a slit in the inner thigh that is just large enough to slip a finger into then he sticks the air hose end in and kind of seals it with his hands till the whole animal blows up. Impressive. Much easier to clean.
The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else
