Nalchik townspeople boil over thrown out remains of sacrificial animals

The remains of the rams killed on Kurban-Bayram celebration remained unattended near the marketplace in the city of Nalchik for five days, and were disposed only on September 6, social network users keep complaining.

The sale and slaughter of sacrificial animals were conducted on September 1 in the area of the Dubki marketplace; and on September 5, townspeople began complaining about the cadaveric smell spread over the vicinity.

"Skins, limbs, heads and giblets were scattered around," says the community "KBR Patriot" in the Facebook.

The posted video shows remains of slaughtered rams.

"A Muslim should dig up the remains of sacrificial animals, or give them away to someone, but in no case throw them out, wherever he wants, especially in the city," the authors of the publication have noted.

The Facebook users impose responsibility for the incident on the traders who sold animals and provided a place for slaughtering them.

After the discussion in social networks, the territory was cleared from the market, and the remains were burnt.
