Sheep are unloaded from a truck at a livestock market in Kuwait City on September 4, 2016 ahead of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha or the 'Feast of Sacrifice'. Eid al-Adha marks the end of the annual pilgrimage or Hajj to the Saudi holy city of Mecca and is celebrated in remembrance of Abraham's readiness to sacrifice his son to God. Cows, camels, goats and sheep are traditionally slaughtered on this holy day. (Yasser Al-Zayyat/AFP/Getty Images)

Pakistani men use a crane to lift a young bull from the roof of a building in preparation for the Muslim annual festival of Eid al-Adha or the Festival of Sacrifice, in Karachi on September 4, 2016. The owner has the practise of keeping young animals -- three or four bulls and and some goats -- on the roof of a four-story building for a year until they are ready for sacrifice. Muslims believe that they will receive more rewards if they raise an animal and sacrifice it after a year or two. (Rizwan Tabassum/AFP/Getty Images)
