Administrative Ordinance, issued by the City Council of Frankfurt [Present-day Germany]: “3. Especially the Jews shall be kept under close watch, to prevent them from surreptitiously smuggle any cattle, horses, or sheep into areas where there is an outbreak of disease among these animals. 5. At those times [of disease], animal sales are only permitted by persons above suspicion, whereas Jews, in particular, are forbidden to enter any stalls. 17. During such epidemics among horned animals, sheep and swine, nobody shall allow the Jews to slaughter an animal, unless the animal has been offered food, accepted it, and has been inspected by specially trained inspectors.”
