Slaughtering An Animal Without A Tail


Can an animal without a tail be used for qurbani?


If an animal is born without a tail, or is born with a tail and more than one third of the tail is cut off, then the Qurbaani of such an animal will be invalid.

(ولا تجزئ مقطوعة الأذن، و) لا مقطوعة (الذنب، ولا التي ذهب أكثر أذنها) أو ذنبها (فإن بقي الأكثر من الأذن والذنب جاز) ؛ لأن للأكثر حكم الكل بقاء وذهابا، ولأن العيب اليسير لا يمكن التحرز عنه فجعل عفوا. 
(اللباب في شرح الكتاب ج٣ صه ٢٢) 

و لا تجوز مقطوع أكثر الذنب… و قيل ان ذهب الثلث لا تجوز
