Selling an Animal With Broken Limb

Divine Code for November 12, 2022

Today: Pages 284-286

From 7:10 -- 7:15

If the wing of a fowl or the foot of an animal is broken but still attached, it is incorrect to remove it with the thought that it would be a stumbling block for others, as eiver min ha hai. (See Chapter 4 above, which explains that a maimed or broken limb that is not detached from the body is permissible for a Noahide to eat after the animal is killed, and it does not fall under the prohibition of eiver min ha hai.)

If one wishes to sell the animal to others for eating purposes, and there is a reasonable chance that they will cut off the broken limb while the animal is still alive and eat it, one should nevertheless eave the limb attached. The uncertainty of someone else transgressing the causing unnecessary pain to animals. It is obvious that one may remove a broken limb of an animal or bird for the sake of healing the injured creature.
