This comes from butchering hogs. Cut to bleed while the heart is still beating. No heart beat throat cut is useless. Plus you just mess up the cape . Just do a neat clean dress job & hang . Preferably in a walk in cooler. I knew a family that would hang them in weather like today for 2-3 days just black pepper the hell out of them to keep the flys off. They grew up without electricity. I was always afraid not to cool them asap .
