Pagan sacrifices depend on which pagan religion you are referring to. Generally, any religion that is not Christian, is a pagan religion. Not all pagan religions require sacrifices. In the ancient northern Mayan culture, there were human sacrifices. In the ancient southern Mayan culture, sacrifices consist of chickens and iguanas. In Sri Lankan ancient paganism, the sacrifices were mostly chicken. Sacrifices were made only to demons (as a bait) and not for higher level Gods. Human sacrifices were shunned upon and limited in unearthing treasure. In ancient Hinduism, they sacrificed mostly Chicken and Goat. In Wicca and Stregheria there are no blood sacrifices done, ever.
