Goats in Turkey

In Ankara some 1 000 Turks received hospital treatment after their knives slipped badly as they held down struggling goats and sheep and bulls during attempts at ritual slaughter at the start of Eid-ul-Adha, the Muslim Feast of the Sacrifice.

Four people were reported as seriously injured when sacrificial sheep resisting their fate tumbled on top of their would-be slaughterers and 3 others suffered heart attacks while struggling to hold down unwilling sacrifices. Hundreds of amateur butchers end up in hospital each year, cutting themselves or having their noses and limbs broken by kicking, unruly animals. Well anyone who handle goats for a living knows the risks and how easy it is to get hurt
