Ruling 2601

If a wild animal whose meat is lawful to eat, such as a deer, partridge, or mountain goat, is killed by hunting in accordance with the instructions that will be mentioned later, it becomes pure and lawful to eat. The same applies to a domesticated animal whose meat is lawful to eat and has turned wild, such as a domesticated cow or camel that fled and has become wild or unyielding and cannot be caught. However, a domesticated animal whose meat is lawful to eat, such as a sheep or a hen, and a wild animal whose meat is lawful to eat and has been domesticated through training, does not become pure or lawful to eat if it is killed by hunting.
