The animals are being prepared for sacrifice in Pakistan for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, or Feast of the Sacrifice.
After the cattle and sheep are killed in traditional ceremonies, the meat is split between the needy and family members.
Elsewhere, thousands have gathered at the Al Azhar mosque in Jakarta to perform special prayers to mark the festival. In some countries the holiday starts today; in others it begins tomorrow.
Meanwhile, thousands are circling the sacred Kaaba stone structure inside the Grand Mosque in Mecca as part of the Hajj pilgrimage.
Worshippers also travel to Mount Arafat, just outside of Mecca, and then throw small stones at a pillar that symbolises the devil in nearby Mina.
