Residents of Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city, watched as the cattle were lowered by crane on top of the four houses on the eve of the Muslim holiday of EID al-Adha.

Unlike other Muslims who buy animals for slaughter a few days before the feast of sacrifice, Syed Ejaz Ahmed, 55, said, raising their young turned out to be more economical.

Ahmad began testicle in the roof of the shed about 15 years ago. As they increased in size, it became difficult to lead the oxen down the narrow stairs of his house.

His decisions? Call the crane service.

The operation has become an annual event in the area of Ahmad Nazimabad, where the crowd was jubilant as he watched the play unfold.

“I was a little scared when I did it for the first time,” crane Mohammad Hanif said this week as he swung seven cows Ahmad and Bulls on the ground.

“When the animal kicks hard, I thought it might break the straps and fell on the crowds of people, especially children,” he said. “Now I have a lot of practice doing it.”

Eid al-Adha is one of two most important holidays in the Islamic calendar and commemorates the willingness of Ibrahim or Abraham to sacrifice son at God’s command.
