Cutting off the Head of an Animal after it has been Slaughtered

Q: Please advise if there is any restriction that you may be aware of in terms of cutting the head of an animal off after the animal has been slaughtered and is completely dead and before removing the insides and the skin?

A: Once it is completely dead, there is no harm in removing the head entirely.

( و ) كره كل تعذيب بلا فائدة مثل ( قطع الرأس والسلخ قبل أن تبرد ) أي تسكن عن الاضطراب وهو تفسير باللازم كما لا يخفى

و قال في رد المحتار : قوله ( وهو تفسير باللازم ) لأنه يلزم من برودتها سكوتها بلا عكس (رد المحتار 6/296)
