A Gaza health official says that a panicking cow has killed a Palestinian man who was trying slaughter the beast during the Muslim celebration of Eid al-Adha.

 

Muslims around the world slaughter sheep, cows and goats during the four-day holiday to commemorate the sacrifice by their forefather Abraham. But accidents are comment as people frequently buy animals to slaughter at home instead of relying on professional butchers.

 

 

Official Ashraf al-Kidra said Saturday that another 150 more people were hospitalized in Gaza with knife wounds or other injuries caused by animals attacking butchers or bystanders.

 

In Gaza, impoverished families scrimp all year to pay for part of a sheep or cow. Many also distribute the meat to even poorer families, giving the celebration a sense of communal solidarity.
