Cremating bodies

Q: When one of our livestock, camels, and other beasts dies, its dead body is eaten by the living beasts, or thrown near the houses of the neighbors or at the roadside. To get rid of the dead animals and protect the living ones, some people want to burn these bodies. Please, tell us the ruling on this act.

A: It is no permissible for the owner of the livestock to throw the dead animals near others' houses, because they harm people. He should carry them and throw them in the wasteland or the places of garbage. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
