Medical - Livestock / Animal Husbandry / clinical trials
Japanese term or phrase: 鑑定殺
This is used to describe killing an animal for autopsy to ascertain whether it (and the herd in this case) is infected with a particular disease. I just wonder if there is a specific term or usual way of translating this. At the moment I'm using 'slaughter for examination'
