Ritual Impurity of an Animal Carcass

We are commanded regarding the ritual impurity [contained in and emitted by] an animal carcass. [I.e., when contracted, one must follow all the laws associated with this impurity.]

From "Sefer Hamitzvot in English," published by Sichos in English.
Daily Quote
Reflect upon three things and you will not come to the hands of transgression. Know from where you came, where you are going, and before whom you are destined to give a judgement and accounting. From where you came -- from a putrid drop; where you are going -- to a place of dust, maggots and worms; and before whom you are destined to give a judgement and accounting -- before the supreme king of kings, the Holy One, blessed be He.
  –Ethics of the Fathers 3:1
