The annual Muslim pilgrimage, the Hajj, is continuing with millions of devotees gathering for the ritual "stoning of the devil" in the last days of the Hajj.

Part of the Hajj involves the sacrifice of animals. This year, some 750,000 animals were slaughtered during the Hajj.

And religious authorities say they are working hard to make sure the meat does not go to waste.
