Qurbaani of a lame animal

Q: Can an animal which is lame in one leg be slaughtered for qurbaani?

A: If it only walks on three legs and does not take support from the lame leg, then it will not suffice for qurbaani. However if it takes support from the lame leg, it will suffice.

والعرجاء التي لايمكنها المشي برجلها العرجاء إنما تمشي بثلاث قوائم حتى لو كانت تضع الرابعة على الأرض وتستعين بها جاز (الدر المختار ص323 ج6 )
