The most common sacrifice is the goat and the Buffalo/Mahisha is the second most common. Both are Asuric. Kali maa loves to receive the sacrifice of Asuras of any kind.
Do lion & tiger also have asura nature, pravritti?
Regarding human sacrifice it is like enemy king (usually a non-dharmic person). But what about other kinds of human sacrifice? Should the always persons be non-Dharmic?
If not, then why does Maa want their Bali? Sorry if I am mistaken and only Asura-nature animals & humans can be sacrificed
