Ritual Slaughter

Ritual slaughter is the practice of slaughtering livestock for meat in the context of a ritual. Ritual slaughter involves a prescribed method of slaughtering an animal for food production purposes. This differs from animal sacrifices that involve slaughtering animals, often in the context of rituals, for purposes other than mere food production and religious slaughter that involves slaughter of animals for the production of specially prepared foods, namely kosher and halal meats in the Jewish and Muslim traditions, respectively.
