Mitzvah #127 - Eating animals that died

A Neveila is an animal that died a natural death or was slaughtered incorrectly - and may not be eaten.

One who eats a Neveila - animal or fowl - deserves 39 lashes by Bet Din.

A stillborn is considered to be a Neveila.

One may not eat a newborn animal until it is 8 days old unless one is sure it was born after a full term pregnancy.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "Do not eat any Neveila" (Devarim 14:21)
