In the Soma yajna, a few animals are killed (I think 3 different animals are killed). My question is, how are they killed? Through beheading, strangulation, etc?

This answer says that the horse is strangulated in the Ashvamedha yajna.

So do other yajnas involving animal sacrifice also involve strangulating the animal?
