In Africa, the deities and spirits are often honored through the sacrifice of animals.
After the ceremony, would the animals be eaten by people? I know that in Asia, some people would eat the animal that was used in a ceremony. It is hard to believe that people won't eat the animal especially if the region is suffered from famine. Are there any reliable sources for this practice?
I am not sure this is the correct subforum but I cannot find an "Africa stack exchange", "culture StackExchange", or "religion stack exchange". If you believe that this question should be transferred to another more appropriate subforum, I am more than happy to know about the name of that subforum.
