Animal Sacrifice is Dangerous

Who knew that animal sacrifice was so dangerous.
"ANKARA, Turkey - Over a thousand Turks spent the first day of the Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha in emergency wards on Sunday after stabbing themselves or suffering other injuries while sacrificing startled animals.

At least 1,413 people — referred to as "amateur butchers" by the Turkish media — were treated at hospitals across the country, most suffering cuts to their hands and legs, the Anatolia news agency reported.

Four people were severely injured, crushed under the weight of large animals that fell on top of them, the agency reported. Another person was hurt when a crane used to lift an animal tumbled onto him, the agency said."

Miriam,

Every Yom Kippur there are people who end up in the ER. Some go in with should injuries and others with black eyes.

Brooke,

You said it.
